D o your toy soldiers ever go to camp? No, you say, because they haven't any tents!
Well, let's make some, then we can have a proper soldiers' camp. You want scissors, some fairly thick white paper, a pair of compasses, and some gum or seccotine. Ready? Now first, on your piece of paper, draw a straight line. Now with your compasses draw a half-circle, as in Picture i. Done that?
Now draw a neat V where you see it marked in the picture. Cut out the V. Picture 2.
Now roll the paper round to the shape of a little tent, and brush some gum down the edges. Pin the edges together till the gum holds. Picture 3.
There's your tent! Make as many as you like. It's fun to make flags to fly from the tops of the tents too. Colour them and cut them out. Use a pin for a flag-pole, and fly the flags over the tents. You will soon have all your soldiers enjoying themselves in camp.
