A quick bag upgrade for your taking your child’s costume to school or for treats! Materials Bag (we used a jute one) Felt (yellow, orange & white) Fabric glue Sewing machine/ thread (optional, you could also hand sew) Sewing marker or stick pins. Embroidery floss and/or yarn and needle Smock Paper/pencil or paper/template candy_corn_template Directions Have your child draw out a piece of candy corn on paper or print the provided template. Cut it out. Trace the entire template on a piece of white felt, using a sewing marker. Cut off the top portion of the template. Trace the template again on orange felt, using a sewing marker. Cut off the middle portion of the template. Trace the template on yellow felt. Cut out. Take all your pieces and put them together to make sure they align, giving them a unifying trim if necessary. Depending on the type of sewing marker that you used, you may want to flip the felt pieces over to hide any lines. Don your smock. Glue or sew the orange portion onto the white base. Glue or sew the yellow portion on top of the orange. Allow to dry overnight. Glue your felt candy corn piece onto your bag and allow to dry overnight. Should you like, add a little embroidery and yarn embellishment to the top of the bag (a great way to practise a bit of sewing!) Purpose Developing hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills. Making a likeness of something. Safety Notes Use scissors and needles with adult supervision. A sewing machine should be used by an adult or based on your child’s age and abilities with direct supervision and guidance. Be sure to wear a smock to protect your clothing from fabric glue!
