Sounds good to me - I'd love a required nap - but that little kiddo of mine hasn't napped since she was two and the idea of laying down and resting upset her very much.
To make the transition to her new school-days life sweeter, I made Gracie an extra-special napping towel. We bought the pink towel from the store, and then dug through my fabric scraps to find a fun combination of patterns to go with the pink.
The project itself was quick and easy and required minimal materials. To make one yourself, you'll need:
- 1 towel
- enough fabric to cut out letters of child's name
- pins or iron-on fusing web
If you don't feel confident drawing the letters yourself, I suggest opening a Word doc, and sizing letters in whatever font you like, then printing them out to use as a pattern.
To attach the letters to the towel, you can use pins (as I did) or iron-on fusing web, which will keep them from slipping.
Then just zig-zag stitch the edges of the letters.
Yup, it's just that easy.
And look at that smile - Gracie doesn't mind her mandatory nap-time one bit, now that she has a special towel!
A cute and easy project that makes an excellent gift... can't beat that, eh?
