Today, after helping us decorate our windows for the holidays, Natacha gives us lots of ideas for folding towels to make (or not) with the children… If there is one thing that is both exciting and stressful, it is the management of D-Day at the organizational level ... and the euphoria that can quickly take hold of children. While we are busy tweaking a few details while cooking and trying not to forget anything, the latter, them, all their enthusiasm to celebrate Christmas. It's time to take advantage of it so they can get their hands dirty, and one fairly simple thing to make them do is the table decor, including the folding of napkins in the spirit of Christmas. Normally. Because we know it too well, sometimes, the folding, we understand nothing, but here are some ideas of Christmas folding guaranteed "kids friendly", to prevent the activity from ending in pugilat and apple fight of pine.

Folding towel in the shape of a fir tree

It is certainly one of the best known, but it is first of all because the folding of a towel in the shape of a fir tree remains a must for Christmas, but also because once we have done it once, it is easy to perform. The big advantage of this folding is that it can then be presented flat or upright, and that kids love. They will be able to create small Christmas scenes near the plates… Take out the Playmobil®, we promise you a few hours (or long minutes at least) of tranquility.

Folding a towel in the shape of a fir tree (bis)

For this second folding of a towel in the shape of a fir tree, we are still in ease of production, with the possible exception of the end of the folding where we will certainly have to intervene. Indeed, as it stands only vertically, we will need to fix the top of the tree. The pins option is a bit complicated if you do not want them to end up in the log at the end of the evening, we will opt for a nice decorated clip, for example, to hold everything ... And that's good, there was full in your advent calendar right?

Folding napkin in the shape of crackers

Crackers are the kind of papillote of British origin that are placed on the plates of guests and that normally contain something to celebrate Christmas (hat, party favors, etc.). It is made, normally, out of paper, to "explode" it, but here, one will use a cloth napkin, therefore. We fill a roll of toilet paper (which we could have decorated before, report that it will be less bizarre on the table once the napkin is open) with little attentions for the guests, we wrap it in the napkin and close each side of the roll with pretty matching ribbons. And now, more than placing the crackers on the plates and voila!

Folding a bow-shaped towel

So, yes, we are not going to lie, we are here in VERY great ease. All the same, a beautiful knot is always pretty and for once, it fits well with almost all possible festivities, so it would be silly to deprive yourself. Here, you just need to fold the fabric towel in four lengthwise, fold each end towards the middle and ... add a beautiful ribbon to tie everything and create your knot. We quickly work the folds around the ribbon and voila!

The easiest napkin folding in the world

If the previous ideas are not to your tastes or too complicated (but if I get there, sincerely, you have all your chances!), You can simply create a sort of pocket with the towel and arrange your cutlery inside. We add some seasonal branches, or downright holly, why not (but be careful that the children are not too attracted by the little red balls anyway, you never know, it would be a shame to spoil the evening), a few sticks and that's it. Big advantage of this idea, it is to send the children outside so that they find sticks and other foliage for the decoration, of a stone two blows, in addition to taking care they will have taken the air! If you are ever endowed with moderately cooperative children, or simply not very patient with patience, the folding of a fan-shaped towel will do the trick very well, don't worry. The goal is above all to free you up a little while they are busy with other things and to entertain them to stop that they constantly ask the exact time of the arrival of Tonton Michel.
