Yarn Wrapped Hanger Craft for Kids
- Grab a wire or felt hanger. I used a felt hanger and these turned out great!
- Tie a piece of colourful yarn to the the top of the hanger and start wrapping it around.
- My kids found it easier to wrap using shorter pieces of yarn. Once you have reached the end of the yarn, tie another piece of colourful yarn to it and then start wrapping again.
- Repeat this until the entire hanger is complete.
- Tuck the ends of the yarn along the hanger and wrap the yarn around it to cover it.
- Cut off any loose ends once complete.
- Cut out a tag and write Happy Mother’s Day or a personal message.
- Use a single hole punch to make a hole and thread a pipe cleaner through. Wrap it around the top of the hanger.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 4, 4, and 7 year old.
This is not a messy activity. Mess level is at the lowest.
Difficulty to Create
Colour recognition, language development, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, imaginative play, creativity.
