Native American Canoe

This is a simple craft, requiring very few supplies, that your kids might enjoy making to commemorate how Thanksgiving began.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

  • brown construction paper
  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • "puff" paints, crayons, or markers
  • stapler

Instructions:

  1. Make a cardboard canoe pattern in one of two ways - either the way shown in the photo, with two canoes connected at the bottom, or a single canoe shape.
  2. Trace the pattern on brown paper - the double canoe is traced as it is, and the single canoe shape is traced on folded brown paper with the bottom of the canoe placed at the fold.
  3. Decorate the canoe with "puff" paints, crayons or markers. The one in the photo I decorated with ordinary fabric paint. Make your decorations more authentic by looking up American Indian symbols at the library or on the internet.
  4. Secure the sides of the canoe to each other with a stapler. If you made the double pattern, you will have to bring the sides up to meet each other first. The single canoe shape will already have the sides in line.
