Children’s Art – Making Shelters – Stone Age to First Farmers

We made early shelters from plasticene, twigs, cardboard and felt pieces. Staying in one of these shelters for one night would be an adventure, but we prefer the comfortable houses of today.

Children’s Work – Modelling Making – Stone Age Shelters

We had fun making models of stone age shelters.

We used twigs for branches,

elastics for vines, ropes and strips of leather,

felt pieces for animal skins

and plasticene for daub. 

Stone age man moved from place to place in search of food.

They had to put up shelters quickly but they were not meant to last.
