There are countless ways to create crafts and play-based learning ideas using yarn. Not only that, these kids activities are beautiful and interesting!
Never would I have anticipated I would be writing and excited about yarn. Really. Yarn brings up connotations of the mundane. It probably goes without saying, but I’ve never knit. Though I do appreciate people who knit and what they create, it hardly inspires me. That is, until now.
Enter in The Undeniable Power of Play. This is a book we co-authored to empower any parent, teacher, or childcare provider with simple ways to facilitate play-based learning. Every idea, recipe or prompt uses common household items and easy to follow instructions.
In addition to our book, we have created a challenge on Instagram. All you have to do is search the #PowerofPlay52 hashtag and join in the fun! Each week, we have a prompt for our play-based learning ideas. And this week was yarn. I’m THRILLED to share with you all of the wonderful ideas we were able to round-up. But before I share these incredible play-based learning ideas using yarn with you, be sure to check out our brand new Undeniable Power of Play page on facebook.
