Default Re: Easy fold for 1st graders?

To be 100% honest?

I had a brownie troop, and 1st graders are realllly young - some of them are still learning how to write, and they have trouble with their manual dexterity skills still. I think this would be a very difficult project to tackle at that age. You will end up doing most of it for them. It just needs to be really simple for this age, and they like to be able to do things themselves, so I'd hesitate to do a project that would require a lot of help.

Could you pre-tie the bows and then let them glue on embellishments? Or make the parts of a stacked bow, and let them glue all of those together? What if you made the bows and they decorated bags to put them in?
