The easiest projects to accomplish with children are usually the most simple. They require very little when it comes to supplies and give you a big bang for your buck. These felt garlands are no exception and after Mom and Dad do the cutting, they can help you get things all twisted — intentionally!
This craft is constructed by cutting 1" wide pieces of felt that are 72" long. You then make a few slits in each and then your tiny tot can help you flip the garland through itself, creating this totally twisted look. It would be simple enough to prepare over nap time and when they awake there's a craft ready to be had. You don't even need to stitch the ends together if you don't want to!
They look great on a tree, down a banister or even on a kids tree if you're into that sort of thing and if not, they'd just be swell decking out a doorway or even tying off holiday gifts. Check out the full step by step tutorial over at The Purl Bee.
