DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Dragonfly Cross Stitch Pattern

One beginner cross stitch pattern for children to make.  It makes a nice picture on plastic canvas or 6 count aida (terrific for beginners!).

To learn more about cross stitching, check out our "How to Cross Stitch" directions.

When I do these projects with the girls, I encourage them fill in the white backgrounds with white cross stitch instead of leaving it unstitched.  The long rows of single colored stitches are terrific practice.  But it's completely up to you!  It does make the project take a lot longer.
