How to Make a Sit Upon

Today, I am posting about making sit-upons with my Daisy troop. Sit-upons are an honored tradition with the Girl Scouts. Being the adventurous bunch that they are, you often find yourself with a need for something to "sit upon" (hence the name). I was able to donate $4.20 of materials for the project. A bargain craft, wouldn't you say?


Step 1: Buy vinyl/fabric-backed table clothes. You will need enough to and cut them into 14'' X 28'' squares/one for each girl. Fold them in half to make a 14 inch square.




Step 2: Tape three sides of the square with masking tape:

Step 3: Punch holes through the tape.



Step 4: Thread ribbon or yarn through the holes all the way up one side. Tie at the top and leave enough for a handle. Tie it on the other side and then thread down the second side.




Step 5: Fill with newpaper:




Step 6: Tape it closed:




Step 7: Throw a sit-upon upon on your shoulder and enjoy:-)

Well that is super easy! How fun! I wasn't a girl scout, so I guess that's why I had never heard of these before! LOL!
