Transform a napkin into something for special Halloween dinners. This would also be fun on a table cloth. Materials Cloth napkins Embroidery floss Needle Threader Thimble Scissors Beads (optional) Sewing marker Paper & a pencil Directions Have an adult iron your napkins. Practise drawing webs on a piece of paper. With a sewing marker, draw you web lightly on your napkin. Cut a length of embroidery floss. Tie a knot in one end. (An adult might need to help with this part, particularly if you are trying to make a double knot.) Thread your needle. For children (adults too!) using a threader may be helpful. Start at the centre and make straight spokes going out, using a basic “up and down” stitch. Make lines in between the spokes to join the web together. Or if your child is older, they could try a “U” shape to join together the spokes. Take off your needle and knot the end, trimming off the excess. Should you like, add a bead or two and make it into a spider with the thread as legs as shown. Purpose Developing one’s fine motor skills with sewing. Safety Notes Exercise care with a needle and scissors, with adult supervision. Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
