Crafty Kids

It’s so rewarding teaching needlecrafts to kids. The school year is almost over and I’ve just finished up the classes. Interestingly the crochet classes were the most popular.

We crocheted slippers (for which I don’t have a picture!), hearts, Valentine envelopes, hacky sacs and critters.

Looking back I think there was only one knitting class this year. Huh. The kids made little backpacks and learned how to knit i-cord for the straps.

I’m looking forward to teaching more classes next year. I’m even considering planning out a day camp program for the summers. We’ll see. It won’t be this summer, but maybe in 2011!

  1. I managed to teach my girl how to knit just fine but I can’t seem to get the crochet across to her properly. I bought a big granny square rainbow afghan kit in hopes that her and I would crochet the 200+ squares together and she really wants to get started but I haven’t managed to get her comfortable with the basics yet.
