    Any picnic is a special event when you make your own decorations! Here's an easy way to make napkin rings for a summer picnic.

  • 2.

    Choose any design you like. Draw your designs on recycled cardboard rolls with Crayola Washable Markers. Use lots of pretty colors!

  • 3.

    If you know how to draw a square, you can make a checkerboard pattern. Here's how. Draw lines from the roll's top to its bottom.

  • 4.

    Then draw lines crossing those lines going around the roll. That makes squares.

  • 5.

    Color in every other square in one row. On the next row, color in the square above the blank one. Continue following this pattern. This will fill in your checkerboard.

    Insert a Hallmark® napkin into one end. What a festive picnic!
