Yarn Bombing – K-6 Beginning of Year Art Project
Yarn Bombing started to become popular in 2005 and it still going on to this day. I decided to introduce my students to yarn bombing on a scale that they could handle.
Yarn Bombing is usually done with a crocheted or knitted piece that is made ahead of time and installed in an urban environment. Since most Kindergarteners – 6th Graders are not skilled at these, I had them yarn wrap instead.
I found these great stringing stars from Roylco and had students wrap yarn around and hook it into the notches. It was really easy, even the Kindergarteners could do it! And it wasn’t too easy for 6th graders because they focused on how to make patterns.
Each class finished in one class period – 30 min. for Kindergarten – 45 min. for 1-4 and 35 min. for 5-6. And we hung them up on the wall during the end of this class period too. Great way to get art up really fast, either at the beginning of the year or maybe before parent teacher conferences.
