We headed out west!
Well in our imaginations anyway!
We have been studying the Westward Expansion
and the Oregon Trail.
This was a favorite craft time project that we all enjoyed.
We purchased covered wagon kits from
They came with easy to read instructions.
We went to our local craft store to buy supplies, paint and glue. We already had sandpaper.
It only took a couple of hours or less to complete our projects and that includes the time for the paint to dry.
I encourage you to make your own covered wagons and head out west in your lesson plans.
