DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Paul Bunyan or Lumberjack Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Paul Bunyan or lumberjack craftcontributed by Leanne Guenther

Children can make this as a Paul Bunyan craft, the woodcutter from Little Red Ridinghood or a generic lumberjack.

Paul Bunyan was a giant lumberjack from American folktales (he wasn't a real person).  His best friend was a blue ox named Babe.  Together they wandered around the American wilderness cheerfully performing superhuman feats.

Imagine being an American pioneer working long hours at the logging camp -- there's no television, no computers, no radios -- not that much to do.  So, it becomes a fun game to make up tall tales about Paul Bunyan's antics and share them with your lumberjack buddies!  According to the stories told by these early settlers, Paul and Babe dug lakes, straightened out rivers and moved mountains -- all with a pleasant smile and an "ordinary guy" attitude.
