Kids’ Craft Camp: Yarn-Wrapped Projects

June 15th, 2010

Pin It

Children don’t need to knit or crochet to make amazing projects with yarn. With a little bit of creativity, you and your kids can make imaginative creations from yarn and some household objects! Colorful yarn, glue, paper or plastic cups, cardboard, buttons, safety scissors, and felt are all all of the supplies you need for an entire afternoon of fun crafting. These wrapped animals are just a few of the ideas we came up with.

But you don’t have to just make animals. With just yarn wrapping, we’ve also made bracelets and decorative vases. Try combining lots of different yarn colors and textures to make a truly exciting project. What yarn wrapping project will you create?
