Summer crafting in my house means involving the kiddos. With the warm weather here, we are outdoors at lot. My girls love sitting in the grass for picnics, playing games on the lawn, and enjoying a popsicle on the front yard. With all of that time in the grass, my girls needed somewhere comfy to sit.
So we revived an old craft from my days as a Girl Scout and decided to make 'sit upons'!
Sit Upons Supplies
-Vinyl Tablecloth 54"x90" (you can get 9 sit upons from one table cloth)
I found a great tutorial for inspiration and then went from there. I let my girls choose a laminated table cloth and colored plastic cording. It's always interesting to me to see what colors/patterns they prefer. Could this table cloth be any more 'summer'??!
We used a 54"x 90"tablecloth from our local party store.
1.) I cut the tablecloth into 15"x 30" rectangles. You can discard the edges of the table cloth-- see this site for an image of how to cut. The pinking shears make for nice edges.
2.) We folded the rectangles in half to form 15"x15" squares.
My girls wrote their names in Sharpie on the backs so we could tell them apart. We have loved using them outside, but you can also use them inside. It's nice to have a soft spot to sit.
So there you have it, a fun summery craft for you to create with your kiddos!
What would you and your kids use a sit upon for?
