Toddler Activities: Make a Lincoln Log Cabin to Celebrate President's Day


Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States. Create a simple log cabin with craft sticks to remember Abraham Lincoln.


  • 1 piece of Construction paper

  • Craft Sticks approximately 14


  • Tacky Craft Glue (faster hold than Elmer's and stronger)

  • Strong Scissors (Parent Use Only)


    1. Lay nine pieces horizontally.
    2. Cut smaller pieces to make door, window and chimney.
    3. Glue the horizontal pieces first, then add window and door.
    4. Lay the roof on the paper to figure out location of chimney OR glue the chimney to the back of the stick so you can ensure that it won't be seen from the front.

    5. Glue or write the title of the picture onto paper.

    6. Let dry thoroughly before moving.

  • Smaller pieces cut from the craft stick may "crack" a little but it actually adds visually to the picture. Of course be careful of all rough edges.

    The Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site in rural Illinois is an 86 acre history park which houses the replica of the 1840s farm of Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln, father and stepmother of our 16th president. Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer living in Springfield by the time his parents moved here in 1837, but he did visit them periodically.
