Make Indian Moccasins
Copy the pattern onto a large piece of brown construction paper or craft paper. Make sure you draw it large enough for your foot. Follow the cut and fold directions. Use a hole punch to punch out the circles and use yarn or string to lace the moccasins together.
Decorate your moccasins with crayons, paint, buttons, beads, fabric (glued on), even cotton balls. Let your imagination run wild!

Did You Know?
Wagons used on the Oregon Trail had to carry nearly 2000 pounds of supplies. They traveled 2000 miles or more to the Oregon Country. Most wagons were pulled by oxen as they could eat the prairie grass and survive without lots of food for lengthy periods.
