Boy don't I feel old. We made these as well as a bridge when I was in girl scouts. I really loved the girl scout camp.I love hiking and camp fires and as a matter of fact still camp. However the hiking part is out. Thank you for the direction's for the sit up ons. I have been trying to remember the dimensions, as I wanted to make some for the grand kids who love to camp. Darlene
We've made these by putting a few layers of newspaper into a milk bag. (the kind you get three smaller bags of milk in) We just tape shut and it works beautifully. Keeps the dampness out.
Yep! remember these! My mom had been a Campfire Girls (Bluebird) leader with my older sisters in Oklahoma, and then was a Brownie leader w/me, and we made these. We used them at the firworks on the 4th of July and other outdoor events for years and years!! Thanks for rekindling a memory!
I would use these in the car on the seats to protect the fabric itself. Make them thin and washable. each child could have his/hers own favorite color. Add some color to your car to match you taste or style. This is a great idea. Thank you
you can also make one by cutting the legs of a pair of old jeans and sewing the legs together and the waist together.
We did this in Camp Fire Girls, using heavy vinyl, but all the rest the same. Still using ours 40 years later!
