I love working on meditative crafts like knitting and crochet, but Im also always on the lookout for simple crafts that dont require so much dexterity.
Though I dont have any kids of my own, I am almost always hunting for new, kid-friendly crafts to add to my arsenal of babysitting tricks!
While I personally love meditative (and somewhat complex) crafts like knitting and crochet, the years Ive spent watching various siblings, cousins, and friends kids have taught me one thing: you will be babysitter of the year if you come equipped with a cool new project that they havent seen before.
So far Ive pretty much exhausted beading, paper cutouts, and even this cool handprint placemat that can be repurposed for any time of the year. That said, I think my new favorite project is a winner!
This craft calls for empty paper towel rolls and scrap yarn, and is perfect for little hands. Make sure that anadult supervises and assists with usingthe hot-glue gun at the beginning and the end; this is a greatproject for grown-ups and kids to work on together!
Check out how its done in the video below, and dont forget to SHARE with anyone who would love to enter the Babysitter Hall of Fame with this awesome craft!
