Flower Napkin Ring

Finally! It's Friday! It's been a long week for me with a bunch of assignments and a busy time at placement. I'm so glad it's finally Friday and that I have a whole weekend to look forward to. That is, after my first test today.
It's been a while since I've posted a craft for you to do with your kids. Here's a great idea I got from one of my classmates. Her daughter had made this beautiful craft for her for Mother's Day. I thought this would be great for a spring or summer table setting.

Here's what you need:

  • Three different colours of felt
  • Scissors
  • Marker
First, you need to cut out a long piece of felt that looks like a bone. The age of your child depends on what he or she may be able to do. 
Next, you need to cut out two flowers, one smaller and one larger. Then, cut a small hole along the centre of both flower and on one side of the bone.
The last step it to piece it together. Fold the bone in half. Thread the two flowers onto it. Then stick the one side of the bone into the side that has the hole. 
You have just made a very easy, yet beautiful, napkin ring.
They look beautiful in a place setting. 
Now that I'm in school I have to share some knowledge with you. This craft will help your child's fine motor skill (cutting with scissors) and problem solving skills (figuring out how to put the napkin ring together). So why not do something fun with your child that can also help their development.

Enjoy your weekend and the beautiful weather we're having.

Happy Crafting,
