Suggestions:

  • Make a cave painting on brown paper bags (crumpled and flattened to represent cave walls).
  • Make a prehistoric hunter’s “game bag” from animal print material. (like Bahpa’s!)
  • Build your own hut

What We Did:
One a large (2×3′) sheet of paper the kids designed their structure. They went to the wooded area behind our house and gathered sticks and bound them together with long grasses to make a sort of teepee. They filled in the walls with dried grasses.

I did not have my camera available the day we did it and didn’t get around to taking pictures until 3 full days later … following a horrendous rain storm. I couldn’t believe how much of their dwelling lasted that long. They did a thorough job.
