The amount of Oly-Fun you’ll need will depend on how the size of your child and how densely you gather the Oly-Fun. I used one complete pack for my small 6-year-old. My tall 10-year-old took 2 packs. One pack is roughly equal to 1 1/2 yards of Oly-Fun off the bolt from your fabric or craft store.
Oly-Fun™ Craft Packs come folded a couple times and then rolled around a tiny cardboard. Open up your craft pack and unroll it, but you do not need to unfold it completely. you will have one long edge with a double fold and another long edge with several raw edges. Cut 6 1/2 inches from the raw edges and approximately 3 1/4 inches from the folded edge.
When you unfold the whole thing, you’ll end up with 3 really long strips approximately 6 1/2 inches wide.
If you’re working with Oly*Fun off the bolt, you’ll want to cut 6″ to 6 1/2″ strips.
