A simple-to-make Lincoln Log Cabin to celebrate President’s Day.
- Construction paper (white and at least one other color)
- White glue or a glue stick
- Craft sticks (popsicle sticks) or strips of brown paper (grocery bag paper or constuction paper)
- A shiny penny
Glue craft sticks (or strips of brown paper) to the paper to make the wall of the cabin.
Cut a triangular roof for the cabin and glue it to the paper. Cut a rectangular door and square window; the window should be bigger than a penny. Glue the door and window to the cabin. Glue a penny, Lincoln side up, to the window.
Draw a door knob and a background. You may want to add a chimney, trees, and other details that the children think of. Label the picture, Abraham Lincoln’s Log Cabin.
