| A variation on a sewing card these little tent cards can be adapted to a variety of stories.
The template contains 2 pages, one templates with Priscila, Aquila and Paul, and one for general use. The first template is the one I’ve demonstrated.
|Print the chosen template onto thin card or onto paper if you have access to lamination. Both templates are in one PDF, but you only need one page per child.|
|Cut out the pieces, just the trim and the tent background. The trim is printed with the tent colour behind so the cutting doesn’t need to be exact.|
|Use a standard hole punch to make holes where the white circles indicate. If you have very young children simply glue the trim onto the tent and punch through both.|
|Cut you thread or string at little longer than 50 cm and fold it in half. Wrap the two ends together using sticky tape. this will be our ‘needle’|
|Pass the thread through the first hole pulling most of the way through. Then pass the ‘needle’ through the loop at the end of the thread. This will secure the thread for stitching.|
|If you were doing all the prep work leave the craft here so the kids can complete. Don’t worry if the hole punch marks don’t line up exactly, the two pieces actually look more realistic with a little movement.|
