Materials

  • Scissors
  • Darning needle
  • Solid-colored fabric
  • Yarn or heavy thread
  • Iron
  • Tempera or acrylic paint
  • Two 2-foot-long wooden dowels
  • Paintbrushes
  • 2-foot length of string

Directions

  1. Cut the fabric into a rectangle 1 1/2 by 2 feet.
  2. Iron the fabric, then lay it right side down and place a dowel parallel to and 1 1/2 inches from a short edge.
  3. Fold the edge of the fabric over the dowel. Use a darning needle and yarn or heavy thread to sew down the edge and form a casing for the dowel.
  4. Make a similar casing on the other short edge of the fabric.
  5. Set aside the dowels.
  6. Have your child paint a design or picture on the fabric, making sure a short edge is at the top.
  7. When the paint is dry, insert the dowels into the casings.
  8. Tie one end of the string to each end of the top dowel so your child can hang his artwork.
