Teddy Roosevelt Paper Doll Craft
Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt was the 26th president of the United States. His most notable achievement was as the first American to ever win a Nobel Prize -- he won the Nobel Peace Prize and for his slogan, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." He lived from October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919.
Another fun fact: In 1902 Theodore ("Teddy") Roosevelt went on a hunting trip. At the end of the day, he hadn't had much success, so a captured black bear cub (a baby bear) was brought for him to shoot. The president said no way and the story touched the nation. Soon a small toy bear was created that became popular around the world for generations to come -- the "Teddy Bear".
This is a simple cut and paste paper craft that can be done "just for fun", for a Teddy Roosevelt theme or for a President's Day theme.
