Well it is going to be February in 2 hours, so I figured that I would put up a Toy Log Cabin Craft Building craft to celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Why? Because it is Presisents Day soon. Just use paper and cardboard tubes / rolls and then just connect them together easily.
How to Make Cardboard Tubes Log Cabin for Abe Lincoln on Presidents Day
Crafts Materials Needed
– Paper Towel Rolls
– Toilet Paper Rolls
– Construction Paper or Card Stock
First off, take a piece of construction paper and cut 3 or so long strips out. These will be used to connect the tubes (logs) together.
Fold the pieces of construction paper, these will be the corners of the log cabin to hold the tubes together.
For all of the cardboard tubes….make slits parallel to each other…as you see in the picture above.
Here is a picture illustrating how to put the log cabin together…take the piece of folded paper…and stick the cardboard tube onto the piece of paper by inserting the paper into the slits that are on the tubes.
Here is one of the folded pieces of paper (corner pieces) with 6 tubes on it. This shows you how we will build the log cabin. You don’t have to follow my directions…lay out the cabin the way that you want to.
This is how you make windows and doors….you can use toilet paper rolls for the parts around the doors and windows…and use long, paper towel rolls for logs that have to go all the way across the structure.
Use an entire piece of paper for the roof and then just place it within the four corners of your log cabin house.
I hope that you enjoyed this building arts and crafts project to help celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday for Presidents’ Day.
