BUILD YOUR OWN

COVERED WAGON!!

Materials:
Shoebox
Brown or white tissue paper
Tag board (poster board or manila folder material will work for this)
4 large brads
Brown construction paper

Instructions:
Use tissue paper to make the cover for your wagon. Lay one entire piece out flat, and begin gluing shredded pieces of tissue paper on top of it. After you have covered the entire sheet of tissue paper, allow it to dry completely. When it is dry, it should be fairly stiff (this will allow it to stand up when you attach it to the wagon).

Cover the sides of the shoebox with brown construction paper.

Cut your wheels out of the tag board, and attach them to the shoe box with brads (these are your wheels).

Using glue, attach the cover to the rest of the wagon.
