Lincoln’s Log Cabin


  • small empty milk
  • pretzels or twigs
  • craft glue
  • small square
    crackers or anything you can use for the roof.
  • shiny paper for
    windows or any add ons you would like.


  1. Wash the cartons
    and glue the opening shut.
  2. You can paint the
    carton first if you like, brown.
  3. Glue pretzels or
    small twigs to the sides of the cabin to resemble
    logs. Leave small squares for windows and a door.
    You can cut these open or make windows and doors
    out of construction paper.
  4. Use small square
    crackers or whatever you think would look good on
    the roof. We used black construction paper
    squares to represent tar paper.
  5. Set your cabin on
    a piece of cardboard covered with green or brown
    construction paper. Add things like grass and
    small trees to make it look like Lincoln’s home.
