| 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.|
any chance this is available in black and white?
Love it 🙂 great for the little ones i teach!!
Hi there, I’ve gone and found the original file and removed the colour. I remember at the time it just didn’t seem to work as well without colour, so didn’t add it, but if it suits your group more then I’m happy to let you be the judge 🙂
No Colour PDF Link
Thank you so much!!!
Perfect for my group!
I cannot tell you how excited I am by this activity! I only wish I found it sooner!
I noticed that Priscilla’s name only has one “l” instead of two. Not sure it’s a quick fix in the pdf – thought I’d mention it if it is.
Melanie, thanks so much, gone and updated that so the PDF now has the right spelling.
Wow. You. Rock!
