Covered Wagon wooden kit
Bring some crafting fun to your history lessons with these inexpensive kits! Each kit includes precut wooden pieces, any small nails or fasteners needed, and easy to follow instructions for building the project. To finish the projects, you will need a few materials not included in the kits: paint (acrylic works best), wood glue, a hammer, sandpaper, and scissors. Younger children may need some help with assembly, but overall the projects are simple to complete. The different models have different amounts of wood pieces in the kits, but there are generally a dozen or more pieces used to complete each model. The Covered Wagon and Pirate Ship models also include white card-stock pieces to form the wagon covering and sails. The Tepee model has a round base with sticks to form the core of the tepee and a paper cone shaped cover that you can decorate with your own designs. Finished projects are small (5-6") but durable. A great addition to your history studies.
