Shelters of the Soul

I am using this weeks Native American creation story to lead us into our Shelters block,  How We Came To Be In This Room. Miss Sky finished reading If You Lived at the Time of Squanto by Anne Kamma. This lead us into talking about Wampanoag houses. The Wampanoag lived in round houses called a wetu. So today we decided to kick the block off with a wetu of our own.

I wish I could say the idea was mine but I found the idea over at Our Little Nature Nest’s  Blog. The instructions can be found here http://pepperpaints.com/2008/05/13/newspaper-hut/ We all worked together and the whole thing took less than an hour to make.

People save their old newspapers for us to use as fire starter in our wood burning stove. So the whole thing cost us nothing and can be recycled in our stove when The Little’s are done playing with it.

But I have a feeling it will be around for a while.

Wishing everyone a blessed weekend.
