Staycation Crafts for Kids – Week 7

Experiment with color and texture in a simple weaving project.


Each kid crafter made a uniquely original project!

You will need the following items to make this project – available at Ben Franklin Crafts!

  • Yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Beads

You will also need:

  • Cardboard or paper plate (we used scraps of mat board from our Frame Shop)
  • Scissors

The directions for this week’s craft are super simple! We based this craft on the Easy Cardboard Circle Weaving for Kids tutorial found on the Hello, Wonderful website and used a yarn needle, too. We had the cardboard looms wrapped with yarn ahead of time so the kids could dive right into weaving. Here’s the process we used:

Remember to set up the cardboard loom with an odd number of spokes and you’ll be all set to start weaving!

We would love to see a picture of your finished weaving! Upload your photo to our Facebook page.
