  • Construction paper folded, or card stock – Fall Colors

Now:

  • Decorate one side of the Band-Aid like I did – I kept is simple with a wavy line, and dots. But, you can use Native American symbols, and get really creative. If you are doing that, be sure to decorate the top part of the Band-Aid.

  • Now, take the paper strip off of the Band-Aid, and carefully match the edges of the Band-Aid as you fold it in half down the length of the Band-Aid
  • Glue the canoe onto your folded sheet of paper, and glue 2 Q-tips in a X pattern for Oars
  • Write the child’s name on the card with marker
  • Glue Rick Rack across the card as an accent. I used green, but you could use blue as water, and place the canoe on the “water”!
