Se7en Make Totem Poles Again and Again…

January 29th, 2010 · 14 Comments

There is something about Totem Poles that my kids just love. They have made them out of play dough, they have made them out of tin cans, they have made them out of cotton spools, they have made them out of boxes… But their favorite has been made from a pile of logs that we grabbed from a tree feller truck a while back.

When the paint fades we repaint and we literally have had them going strong for years.

So all you need are some tree stumps and some paints, we used craft acrylics… and a couple of very enthusiastic artists really helps!!!

I guess what I like about is you can play with it and move it about and re-arrange it. This lanky totem pole is never the same two days running!!!
