Cut the paper toweling tubes into sections approximately one-inch wide, and cut out pieces of fabric that are large enough to cover the inside and outside of the cardboard. Wrap the cardboard napkin rings as you would wrap a present, and carefully fold down and glue the edges. If the fabric doesn’t stay in place, secure the glued edges with paperclips until the glue dries.

After the glue has dried, the real fun can begin. Kids can decorate the napkin rings with color-coordinated rickrack, yarn, or ribbon. After wrapping the ribbon, rickrack, or yarn around the napkin rings, and gluing the ends in place, kids can glue on sequins, colorful buttons, faux gems, or craft foam cut outs. With craft foam, kids can make tiny butterflies, ladybugs, stars, and any other conceivable shapes. Offer a little help and advice, but let your kids do most of the creating and decorating.

Kids can make flower-covered napkin rings by removing fabric flowers and foliage from the stems, and gluing the flowers and leaves to the napkin rings. Optionally, kids can surround the flowers with faux gems or anything else they can dream up. The design options and creations your kids can make on napkin rings made from paper toweling tubes are virtually endless.
