What you will need for this project:
- 1 yard of fabric
- storage size baggies
- sewing machine
Cut strip to 52 inches. This seems to be a good length for an average Kindergarten aged student. I made a couple a little longer for first and second grades. Next, fold in half the long way with right sides together, and sew 1/4 inch seam on long side only. Turn right side out and place seam in middle of strip. Press.
Fold short ends under 1/2 inch. Press, then top stitch.
Fold edges over 10 inches on each side. Top stitch long edges.
Fill two storage size baggies with rice. I used the cheapest rice I could find at the grocery store. I sealed the baggie then taped it shut also. Insert one baggie in each side, and sew it closed.
Voila! You have your own version of a sensory lap belt!
