T-shirt yarn crafts for kids
Kids are able to work with T-shirt yarn for having fun, enjoying a great time with their parents and developing their fine movements; to achieve these goals you can help them with some easy crafts, for example: you can show them how to make braids and then using the braids to play.
A craft they can make is this nice octopus using a ball and fabric strips.
To make the octopus you have to make braids, tie them, add a ball to form the head and make the neck with a fabric strip.
To finish the octopus just let the fabric strips fall free to simulate the tentacles. To add the final decorations (eyes, mouth, etc.) you can use googly eyes, buttons and other materials of your liking.
Another craft for children is to make a pencil holder. They just have to cover a recipient with fabric strips and glue, to finish it make a bow and it is ready to use.
