Easy Christmas Crafts for Kids: Yarn Wrapped Ornaments
We’re getting in the Christmas spirit around here! The tree went up this weekend, shopping is underway, Christmas cards are ordered – and I’m loving every minute! The best part of this season for me is that it gives me an extra excuse to craft!
Art and craft activities for kids can be hit or miss. But something about creating craft projects around the holidays usually draws their interest, especially when they’re making something as a gift for someone else!
We whipped up these super simple yarn wrapped ornaments over the weekend and they turned out so cute that I think we’ll use them as gift toppers on all of our Christmas gifts this year!
WHAT TO DO:
Trace your star shape onto the cardstock and cut it out (or for kids who are getting good with cutting with scissors, have them cut out the star themselves).
Tape the end of your yarn into a loop about an inch from one of the tips of your star.
Then, set your child loose, wrapping the yarn around the star shape like crazy! They can cover the whole star, or leave some of the cardstock showing underneath – either way, the final product is really cute!
HOW TO CHANGE IT UP:
-Try some other holiday shapes! Little yarn-wrapped Christmas trees would be so cute too!
-String several smaller stars together to make a holiday garland!
