Tent pattern, scissors, crayons
or precut a tent pattern (use large triangle shape, with tent stakes at
corners) Let children decorate their tents, then cut a slit up the middle
to make the tent flaps. You can also have the children draw a picture of
themselves sleeping in their sleeping bags or use a cut out for them to
color as themselves (use multicultural crayons). Attach the decorated
tents to the bulletin board let children tape the "picture " of
themselves sleeping inside the tent flap. ( bend the flaps back so you can
see inside the tent.)
