Children are more likely to rest well with a friend nearby. Encourage children to make their own stuffed resting friends.
What helps you rest? A favorite blanket or cuddly animal? Here's how to make your own resting friend. Choose what you want to create-perhaps a small paper quilt or stuffed creature.
To make soft paper, soak paper grocery bags in water (do this outside if possible). Crumple up the bags and squeeze water through them. Flatten them out to dry. This may take a day or two.
With Crayola® Washable Markers, draw the shape and size of your resting friend. Make it big enough to stuff. Cut out two pieces (for a front and back) the same size with Crayola® Scissors.
Design both sides of the quilt or creature with markers. For example, draw fabric squares and buttons, or draw eyes and make a tail with yarn.
Crumple up recycled newspaper for stuffing. Lay the stuffing on the bottom half of your resting friend.
Squeeze Crayola® School Glue all around the outside edges. Place the top of your resting friend on the stuffing, and seal the edges. Dry overnight.
Add stitching with markers, or glue yarn, around the edges. Sweet dreams.
