Adding this into the "Not Me!" Carnival as my first ""Not Me!" because believe me, it was "Not Me!" to let the boys just eat this whole Abe Lincoln Cabin as they made them, while they constructed them, and long AFTER they were created.....
Yesterday for Inauguration Day we made these adorable Abe Lincoln Log Houses and learned a lot or history - past and present during the morning of President Obama's Inauguration. (My first time to say President Obama ;)
These are great fun and easy. I set up a table by the fireplace with the pretzels, wheat things, peanut butter and reese cups. Gave the boys water bottles and they had ample snacks for the project and snack time. Then I got to do my craft (I did it, that is another post!) and enjoy the festivities.
Abe Lincoln Log Cabin Kids Craft
Here is another view of one of the cabins. I used two different milk cartons so they had different structured cabins. This was 'cool.' And very 'green' so I didn't but more cartons for this project. 9For some reason the single picture of the tall cabin is not uploading.)
My post Inauguration Day Kids Activities is here and it has all the details. This would be an awesome project for President's Day in February. And it "Works For Me Wednesday!" Check out more ideas @ WFMW.
