Make a precious belongings pouch for kids, to use as you hike the trails.

What You'll Need:

  • Different colored sheets of felt
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Staples or glue

Step 1: Cut a 5 x 12-inch rectangle out of a piece of felt.

Step 2: Fold up the long end of the strip about 2/3 of the way.

Step 3: Staple or glue the edges together to form a pocket.

Step 4: If you'd like, you can make two parallel slits in the back of the pouch so you can thread your belt through the slits.

Step 5: Decorate the pocket by cutting out shapes from the felt (maybe nature shapes, such as leaves, animals, flowers, etc.) and gluing them to the pocket.

Now it's time for that nature walk!
