Homemade Napkin Rings

ages 3-6


Empty cardboard paper towel or toilet paper tubes, wrapping paper of choice, scissors, tape.

Activity Detail

Make homemade napkin rings with your child for a special occasion. Using either an empty paper towel or toilet paper roll tube, cut the cardboard tube into inch long "rings." Then, choose some wrapping paper that would fit the occasion (for example, birthday wrap for a birthday party). Help your child cut the wrapping paper into strips. Together, take a strip of wrapping paper and tape it, design side out, to the inside of the cardboard ring. Then, take the strip and place it through the ring over and over so you end up eventually covering the cardboard ring with the wrapping paper. Use another strip of wrapping paper if you run out and don't end up covering the cardboard with the first strip of wrapping paper. Make as many as you need for your occasion.

This would also be a wonderful opportunity to discuss four of the R's of conservation- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose!
