The Ten Little Indians Project is one of Nannie CanDo's Kids Nursery Rhyme Crafts that inspires imagination and creativity, teaches the nursery rhyme and in this instance will give you the opportunity to discuss what this special day, Thanksgiving day, is all about.
Here you can produce another great collectible keepsake.
Watch the nursery rhyme video below with your little Poppits and when you are ready make up a collage picture of the nursery rhyme with them.
Materials you will need
Plain or colored piece of paper or cardboard
Cut outs for the Little Indians, the tee-pees, the forest and perhaps a horse or two(get the little ones to color them in)
small pieces of magnetic stips (recycled pieces will do from old fridge magnets)
Feathers for the little Indian boys' head gear
Bobble eyes or let the littlies draw them onto the faces
Little bits of material, perhaps use brown felt for the boys pants or brown cardboard
Sticks for the top of the tee-pees, or wool
Glue, scissors and crayons/textas
Optional paints for the background
