This is a cute flower making activity for 4 -5 year old kids. While wrapping the yarn, they get wrist exercise which may help them while writing.
We have to first make the flower loom. This can be made with cardboard. But for kids, I prefer plastic canvas as it is flexible. It also will not get bend out of shape after a few uses.
Cut the circular plastic canvas as shown above. And guide the child to wrap the yarn around the pegs.
Yarn has been wrapped.
We wrapped the yarn 3 times around each peg. The number of wraps can be more or less depending on the number of petals required.
Using a needle and a contrasting color, we stitched in the middle using back stitch. This will hold the yarn petals together. This step can be done by an adult or the kids can be given a plastic needle.
Remove the flower from the loom.
Yarn loom flower ready. This can be used to decorate their bags / head bands / stuck on craft work.
