INSIDE: Yarn wrapped Kinara Craft is an adorable way to create a Kwanazaa decor with your kids this Kwanzaa!! It makes a wonderful fine motor activity for preschoolers and older kids and creates a beautiful piece of art that your kids can display in their room or gift to a friend or grandparent.
Beautiful Kwanzaa Art
This wonderful craft is a great for the holiday this year. All you will need is red, black and green coloured yarn.
Yarn Wrapped Kinara Craft
Grab ten craft sticks and red, black, green and brown yarn. Wrap three sticks with red, three sticks with green, three sticks with brown and one stick with black.
Let your little one wrap as much or as little yarn as they want. But suggest to them that they can make each candle look different with different patterns. Have them wrap the yarn from top to bottom. Secure the ends of the yarn by tucking them in.
Grab a piece of cardboard or white cardstock as well as your craft glue. You can also use a hot glue gun to secure the craft sticks but craft glue will work as well.
Glue the craft sticks down in the shape of a Kinara on the piece of card stock. Grab some glitter gold foam sheets and cut out seven candle flames. Glue those down on top of the candles.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
