Matchbox Covered Wagon
My son wants two covered wagons. A small one, for his tiny oxen, and a larger one, for his other set of oxen. We made a larger one several months ago, but it finally bit the dust. Right now I am in the process of thinking through another, even sturdier version. Until then, I made this tiny wagon for the mini-oxen. It is made from a small matchbox tray, pipe cleaners, buttons and felt. The yoke is made from one of the mini-Popsicle sticks they make now. As a side note, have you looked at the kinds they have lately? Phew! You can even get notched ones to build with. Very fun!
