  1. This is pretty awesome! I have a large stash of yarn from my mom when she passed away that I may never get through by creating knitting or crocheting projects… So, this is just so cool! Thank you!

    • We have a huge collection of yarn that needs to be put to good use, too. These projects should get you going…and you’ll probably even think of a few more as you get started. Enjoy 🙂

  2. Hi Shaunna. Great post! So many fun activities. Your yarn bowl is my favorite! Thank you so much for including our activities. 🙂

  3. Thank you for sharing these fun yarn activities, they will make a wonderful addition to my Yy activities! My pre-kers will be talking about the letter Yy this coming week, although they had a preview of the letter/Letter Person as they viewed my first “flipped classroom” video.


  4. Wow! So many great ideas in this list. I think we’ll start putting some of them to use today!

  5. I never thought of pairing yarn activities with yarn books – how FUN!

    • Thanks, Carolyn! I love that our preschool themes have helped me discover so many books that I may not have grabbed from the library otherwise. We’ve find some real gems!
