Prepare the "hide." Open, crumple, and soak a brown paper grocery bag in water. Flatten and air-dry the bag. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, draw a large buffalo (animal or hide) on the bag. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors. Erase any extra marks.
Set the scene. Using Crayola Twistables, color construction paper with sky and prairie. Attach the buffalo to the background with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Make miniature replicas. On a separate paper, use Crayola Multicultural Markers and Twistables to draw and color many items that Native Americans made from buffalo. Glue them to the buffalo for an informative display.
