My cute little sugar shack!

View all articles

I really like maple syrup, taffy on the snow, and maple sugar! Did you know that sugaring off and sugar shacks are typically a Quebec tradition ?  That is because maple trees grow better because of our weather conditions.  I am always excited to go to a sugar shack in the springtime – do you ?

Let’s build our own sugar shack together! Gather you materials and let’s start!

MATERIALS

• 1 small brown paper bag
• newspaper or store circulars
• wooden coffee stir sticks
• 1 piece of Kleenex or tissue paper
• 1 colored piece of construction paper (you pick the color)
• glue, scissors, paintbrush and a stapler

STEP 1

•Fill the brown paper bag with the newspaper (or store circulars)
•Fold the open ends of the bag over and use the stapler to close it

STEP 2

•Glue the wooden coffee stir sticks onto your sugar shack to look like wooden boards

STEP 3

•Cut the pieces of the construction paper to decorate your sugar shack:  make a roof, windows, a chimney and a door!

STEP 4

•Gather all the pieces to put on your cute little sugar shack…
•You can do like I did and draw details, like squares, on the windows and a doorhandle on the front door.

TA-DA !!!

Here’s my sugar shack!
Did you see ?  I added some smoke coming from the chimney! 
Can you smell the maple water boiling ?

 

I hope you had fun making this activity with me!

Come back soon!
