Native American Picture Story

Native American Picture Story craft

This project was inspired by Lenni Lenape story telling. Encourage children to tell their own stories through pictographs, or picture writing.

  • 1.

    To make your stand-up adventure story book, use Crayola Scissors to cut tan construction paper in half lengthwise. Fold the left side of one piece in to the middle, then fold the remaining part of the paper behind the first fold, accordion style.

  • 2.

    Peel wrappers from Crayola Crayons. Place textured objects such as mats or corrugated cardboard under the pages of your book where you want texture. Rub with the sides of peeled Crayons.

  • 3.

    Use an authentic Native American symbol guide or create your own symbols. Use the Crayons and Crayola Colored Pencils to create designs that tell a story.

  • 4.

    Tie ribbon or raffia in a bow to close the book for a picturesque look.
