Yarn Wrapped Flowers: Spring Fine Motor Craft for Kids
I loved our yarn wrapped rainbows so much that I am sharing another activity involving yarn today for Fine Motor Friday: Yarn Wrapped Tulips. I love that this series allows me to share my crafty ideas that are not necessarily homeschool related; partaking in this series has been so fun for my kiddos and we hope you have been inspired by all the fine motor activities from us and fellow co-hosts!
Flower Craft for Kids
Set up was simple; I free handed some tulips on a piece of cardboard and had the kiddos wrap them up with yarn. I cut slits along the edges of the tulips to make it easier to wrap the yarn. Wrap away to your hearts content! The tulips seemed to be a bit trickier than the rainbows, so be ready to help out, if needed.
To make the stem, Big Brother and I colored some craft sticks green and slid them onto the back of the tulip. Add them to a jar and you have a beautiful handmade bouquet that sneaks in plenty of fine motor practice!
