DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Covered Wagon or Chuckwagon Craft

contributed by Leanne Guenther

Covered wagons were used extensively during the pioneer times of the United States and Canada to move people and goods west across the prairies of North America.  They were also known as prairie schooners.

A chuckwagon was much smaller.  It carried food and cooking equipment used by cowboys while they were moving cattle on the prairies.  In modern times, chuckwagons are are part of a popular rodeo race event.

You can make a horse toilet paper roll craft and a cowboy toilet paper roll craft to accompany this one.
