Calling all cowpokes! Imagine riding the range wearing a 10-gallon hat and handmade leather boots. Join legendary cowboys out on the ranch!

  • 1.

    Find out about real cowboys. What kind of work did they do? Where did they live? How did they dress? Are there still cowboys today?

  • 2.

    On white construction paper, use Crayola® Colored Pencils to draw a lasso (rope) curling around the page.

  • 3.

    On another paper, draw two large leather cowboy boots. Use your imagination to create beautiful colored pencil patterns on the sides of the boots. Make intricate cowboy designs such as lizards or longhorns. Short lines look like stitches.

  • 4.

    Create a large Stetson (cowboy) hat. These hats have a high crown and a wide brim. Color it with colored pencils.

  • 5.

    Cut around your cowboy boots and 10-gallon hat with Crayola Scissors.

    Use a Crayola Glue Stick to attach the boots and hat to the poster. If desired, add a western greeting such as HOWDY. Saddle up your horse and head for the roundup!
