Many Native American tribes made tepees (tepee is sometimes spelled tipi or teepee) from long tree limbs and animal hides. You can make a model tepee using a brown paper grocery bag and twigs. This is a simple, inexpensive craft.
- 4 straight twigs (about a foot long each)
- Yarn, twine, or a rubber band
- A large, brown paper grocery bag
- A pencil
- Crayons, tempera paint, or markers
Put the twigs into the tepee. Tape the twigs into place – each twig is taped along a fold line.
You now have a wonderful tepee!
