Five Kid-Friendly Crafts Made From Yarn

Am I the only one that has a basket full of yarn taking up space in a closet?  Every once in a while I’ll pull it out to do a crochet project, but what inevitably happens is a barrage of children begging me to make ‘something fun’ with it. Today I’m sharing five kid-friendly crafts made from yarn.

Since I can be a sucker for their enthusiasm, I occasionally indulge. Besides, yarn crafts are some of the easiest to try because they don’t require a ton of materials.

Here are a few that we have tried and enjoyed:


Kid-Friendly Valentine Crafts Made From Yarn


1. String Heart yarn cards

If you want to create some really unique valentines, these are great! This would also be a great craft to introduce sewing.

2. Love Bugs

Ours turned out a little cheesy, but believe it or not, the kids really enjoyed these little creatures the most. Homemade monsters? What’s not to love?


3.Yarn wrapped word

This was somewhat challenging for little fingers, but we conquered a word together. (I can see this as a future exercise for practicing letters and name writing.)


4. Yarn Wrapped Hearts

Yarn wrapped hearts are such a fun, easy craft to do with kids. Learn how to make these yarn hearts, as well as, get a few ideas of what you can do with them.

5.Pom pom garland

This little garland is so cute. I think we are going to hang it in the girls room after Valentine’s Day. We just used our fingers to make the pom-poms, but if you want a more perfect looking garland you can buy a cheap little pom-pom maker on Amazon.
