Give your kid a lesson in making blankets, and he'll be able to give the gift of warmth to friends and family. Fleece blankets are especially fun to make—and cozy to cuddle with! Not to mention, he'll get the chance to feel the wonderful joy of giving. Requiring minimal supervision, this activity guides him in cuttting and making a decorative fringe around the border. And, he can customize the blanket to be the recipient's perfect size!
Note: Fleece generally comes as large as 60 inches wide, so it's easy to make the blanket as large or small as he wishes. Keep in mind that when he finishes, the blanket will be about 10 inches smaller than the beginning fabric size.
