A few months ago I signed the kids up for a monthly craft subscription through a company called, Kelly Kits (kellykits.com). Around the middle of each month both kid receives a new craft idea through the mail, which they love. Not only do they receive mail, which is always exciting, but they also are able to participate in a new craft we haven’t yet explored. Each kit comes complete with all the materials needed for each craft and a sheet explaining how each craft can be used to assist in preschool curriculum and elementary curriculum, along with some facts about how to use each craft or where the craft idea may have originated from.
This month the craft demonstrated how to use yarn in order to make a “cool wool” design. They sent along a piece of sticky board and a handful of yarn so the kids could create any design their little hearts desired! I sat down and created my own design with my daughter and we had so much fun trading and using all sorts of different colors. You could even shake things up a bit and use different types of ribbons, string or cut fabric into strips. We will then frame them and use them as decoration in our playroom.
