After our recent experiments with yarn on canvas, I started thinking about all the fun kids’ art activities we’ve done with yarn and string over the years. Everything from printing and painting with yarn to making spider webs and installation art.
Ready? Here’s a list of 11 art activities to try with yarn…
6. Cutting practice with string (great for toddlers and preschoolers!)
10. Yarn printed eggs (from The Artful Spring eBook)
11. Yarn spider webs (from The Artful Autumn eBook)
Plus, of course, knitting and crocheting, which Maia wishes we would do a bit more of but which I have a bit of a hang-up about. There’s a super cool children’s book called Extra Yarn, though, about a little girl and what she knits with her magical yarn (thanks to Molly for telling me about it a year or so ago).
Any fun kids’ yarn art ideas to add to the list? You know we’ll try them!
