So many different ways of naming and searching for these fiddle blankets - I just came across a relevant activity submitted by one of our members:

The Envelope Game

Thanks for submitting this activity Chant!
Just to clarify - how would envelopes that have a number on them greater than 6 be distributed? The rules say that whatever number you roll is the number envelope you pickup (or steal) - so I was just wondering what happens with numbers not on the dice.

Thanks Chant!

Hi Jill,

These fiddle blankets do seem to be quite pricey, don't they!
If making your own is an option, we have a pinterest board with lots of photos which could give you some ideas. https://www.pinterest.com/goldencarers/fiddle-blankets-fidget-quilts/

Hi Lori,

We've got some more ideas on a pinterest board here:

The little ribbon shamrocks and ribbon wreath look like nice and easy activities. Also the hanging shamrock garlands.

Hope this helps!
