Pocahontas taught John Smith how to paint with the “colors of the wind.” She loves all things nature, so bring her to the backyard or to explore just around the riverbend!
Time: 25 minutes
What You’ll Need
- Regular paper or cardstock
- Glue or double-sided tape
How To Make It
- Print the template on regular paper or cardstock and cut out the pieces.
- Starting with Pocahontas’ legs, make all folds along dashed lines. Secure the A tabs at Pocahontas’ knees to their corresponding sides, using glue or double-sided tape. Continue to secure the tabs in alphabetical order.
- Line up the back of Pocahontas’ head with her face, then secure the two pieces so the design is two-sided. Fold the middle of her torso toward you along the dashed line. Fold the dashed line across her shoulders (below the H tab) away from you.
- Fold each tab on Pocahontas’ chest piece along the dashed lines. Secure the G tabs behind the chest piece. Place a dab of glue on the H tab and press it into place on the H panel on Pocahontas’ torso. Make sure her shoulders line up correctly.
- After the glue dries, add glue to the I, J, K, and L tabs, then press them into place. Hold the pieces together until the glue dries.
- Attach Pocahontas’ torso to her waist by gluing the tabs at the bottom of the torso to the sides of the waist.
- Fold each of Pocahontas’ arms of the designs are two-sided, then secure each arm with glue or double-sided tape.
- Attach Pocahontas’ arms to the sides of her body by gluing the M tab to the M panel and the N tab to the N panel.
- For the Stump: Cut out the stump and make all folds along the dashed lines.
- Using glue or double-sided tape, attach the A tabs on the top of the stump to their corresponding pieces on the side of the stump.
- Complete the shape by securing the B tab to the back of the last panel.
Cutting should be done by an adult.
