  Mini Tent & Sleeping Bag

NOTE: If you missed the first page of this craft, use the "first page" button at the bottom of the instructions or click here to start from the beginning.

Now that your supplies are at the ready and your work surface has been prepared, let's begin!

What You Do

Take 4 popsicle sticks and glue them into a square. Do the same with the other 4 sticks. Glue the 2 frames together at an angle.

Cut a piece of felt that stretches from the bottom of one frame, up, over the top, and back down to the bottom of the other Popsicle stick frame. Also make sure to leave extra on the triangle ends.

Cut a slit at the top and the middle of the extra piece on both sides. Fold over the pieces so they come to a point.

Cut a small square of felt (in a different color if possible)and glue it to one of the triangle ends. That becomes the back of the tent. The other end is left open as the front.

Cut another piece of felt that is about the same length and a little less than the width of the tent. Fold the felt in half and cut a little less than an inch off one side of it. This will be a sleeping bag.

Tear the cotton ball in half and cut a piece of felt the same size as it. Glue the half cotton ball to the top of the long side of the sleeping bag. Then glue the small piece of felt over the cotton ball, covering it completely. This makes a pillow that is attached to the sleeping bag.

Fold the small half of the sleeping bag over the long half. You can glue it down if you choose. Take any felt scraps and use them to decorate the sleeping bag.

You now have a fun way to bring camping indoors and keep it as long as you want.
