Fun Finds For Mom

Yarn bombing for kids

We just got back from a trip to Pinetop, where we stayed at my parents’ cabin in the woods. One afternoon, my mom and I went into town to hit the antique and thrift stores, where I scored two bags of craft loops (about 1,000 of them total) for 50 cents. My kids were so excited to loop them into a long chain that stretched almost all the way down the street. Inspired by the yarn bombing of these trees (shown below), I suggested they wrap the trees with their colorful thread.

They wrapped them around three trees, creating a magical fort inside.

You can buy bags of craft loops right here.

These make a great travel activity, either using to weave the traditional pot holders, or just to loop through themselves like my kids did. Hours of crafty entertainment!
