The Yarn Bowl

January 29, 2009

We entertained our winter selves with a fun craft from the blog, A Friend to Knit With. My boys are 5 and 3, so I figured that this was a pretty good age appropriate activity for them to do. We blew up our balloons (a favorite activity in and of itself).

I cut about 60 strands of yarn, anywhere from 5-7 inches long, and then soaked them in modge podge.

The boys then just had a ball placing the yarn where ever they wanted it on the balloon. It didn’t take too long to complete, it kept their attention for a pretty long time, and of course the best part……


They got to pick all that gooey glue off of their fingers when they were done!

It was a fun afternoon, and I am excited to see the bowls once they are done (I promise to post a pic once they are dry).
