I found this cute little project by Pepper Paints and thought it looked like a really fun project for the kids that would not only give them hours of enjoyment after it is finished but would be a great project to keep them busy for a while as well.
This project uses A LOT of newspapers. Also, you will need tape, a pencil, stapler, a sheet is optional.
First lay 4 sheets of newspaper on top of each other. Place the pencil in the corner and roll the 4 sheets diagonally to make a tube.
Tape the middle and let pencil slide out of tube. Repeat 25 times. The 25 tubes should be close to the same length-trim if you need to.
Use 3 tubes to make a triangle and staple at each corner. Repeat until you have 5 triangles.
Connect the triangles in a long line, staple together.
Get help! Stand the triangles up and staple the two ends together. Add a tube to the last top spot.
Use the 5 remaining tubes to make a star stapled in the middle.
A sheet or other light weight material can cover your hut if you want. Get inside and play!!!!
