We recently switched Travis from his highchair to a big boy table. It seemed like the perfect occasion to make him his own napkin ring as well!
For this simple craft, all you need are wooden beads and pipe cleaners. Threading the beads on is great practice for little fingers.
As we worked, Travis and I discussed the different beads – some dark wood, some lighter, and in different shapes like squares and circles.
He lost interest after a while and the beads themselves became fodder for a game. Meanwhile, I finished the napkin rings by looping any remaining pipe cleaner back over itself to seal.
Slip in a napkin and you’re done! These would be a lovely project for kids around the holidays, too.
