Easier Native American Vests

I was at school this morning and the Pre-K teacher was making her vests for her Native Americans today. Her technique is easier than the brown bag method so I thought I would share it. (I didn't have my camera so I don't have any pictures-sorry).

She said she went to Wal Mart and bought a roll of brown postal wrap. She then cut it into strips, folded the strips in half, cut a V on the fold, and let the children stamp it with fall stamps in fall colors. The "vest" would then go over the child's head--like a placard. I had a roll of white paper that I cut a sample out of to give you an idea. I made the vest 18 inches wide and 2 feet in length.

Don't forget there is always the original brown bag vest: Native American Vests.

I saw on our feast day that she also tied a piece of yard around the children's waists to help keep the vest in place. Sorry I didn't know about this when I first posted.
