One of the reasons I love where I live is that it’s so rich in Native American culture here. I live in a town adjacent to where it all began – Plymouth, MA (you know, where the first Thanksgiving took place). Everywhere you go around here, there are reminders that the Native Americans left their footprint here first and I love finding ways to teach my kids about their culture. While there are many tribes, the Wompanoags are most prominent in this area.
This DIY teepee craft is the perfect way to teach your kids about the Native American culture here in the US. It’s easy to make & only needs a few supplies.
How to make a teepee kids craft:
Here’s what you need:
- sticks of varying lengths but of similar thickness (average of 10 inches 10 1 ft. shown)
- tape and glue to secure things to the tee pee
- craft items to decorate your teepee such as various types of string and yarn, washi tape, fabric scraps, ribbon, construction paper, felt, feathers, etc.
