teepee craft

We spent the whole day crafting yesterday. One of the things we made were teepees.
I found a chart of Native American symbols and had them try to draw some on their teepees. Josie's has the sun's rays which stands for constancy, Georgia's on the right has many different symbols such as a bear track which stands for a good omen, morning stars which means guidance, a horse means journey, the medicine mans eye on the door means wise and watchful. Let's see what else.... the arrow means protection. She has many more symbols but I'll spare you. I have yet to ask Emmy what her pictures mean. Oh wait a minute, they aren't symbols, she says she put jewels on it.
