After learning about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in our coin storing tray, I thought it would be fun to extend our learning about the presidents by making a mini version of Abraham Lincoln's log cabin. We simplified the log cabin I found Martha Stewart's website, making it the prefect project for a preschooler!
Wrap the board book in tin foil. I used tin foil and a board book for our base, but a piece of wood or cardboard would also make a good base.
Spread peanut butter on the outer sides of the pretzels and build the walls of the cabin by stacking the pretzels on top of each other. For an alternative to peanut butter, frosting could be used to "glue" the pretzels together.
Add a roof and door by "gluing" the graham crackers onto the pretzels. We also added a piece of candy for a door handle.
This was a quick project that required very few materials (all of which I already had!). Plus this mini-log cabin made a tasty snack!
