Easy Threading Craft (For Young Kids)

1:38 AM

 My two boys can get very rowdy when they don't have things to do. So we are always coming up with new low-2-no cost activities and crafts for them to stay busy. And this is one of my favorite. And what I love most about this craft is its very kids hands on.
You can have your child pick what kind of image they would like to thread. It can be colored, cut out and they can even help with the whole punching. Plus they can re-thread this over and over to make different designs.
Whole puncher
1 sheet colored paper
1 sheet Card stock

1. Fist glue your colored paper to the card stock.
2.Cut out desired shape
3.Color/draw designs on the cut out image,
4.Punch wholes out around design about 1/4 inch or more apart and 1/2 inch from the edge of paper
5. Cut yarn twice the length of your  image

It helped my little boys to see me thread the image first so they knew what to do.

Here are some Ideas for the shapes you could use.
  • Football
  • Christmas Tree
  • Stocking
  • Tree
  • Clothes
  • Animals
  • Cars and Trucks
  • People or Dolls
  • Gift/Present

I hope you have a lot of fun with this,

  1. Now that's cool. I really need some activities to keep them busy. All I need is the hole punch and I'm good to go.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I remember doing this when I was small. We not only did it on paper but also on two pieces of felt to make mittens, not usable but for gifts. I love the ideas that are old and not expensive.

  4. I used to love this so much when I was little. I have to do this with my daughter.

  5. I'm making some of these for my girls! I found some vintage sewing/lacing cards online that you can print out on the cardstock and then punch out. Mostly girly things, though. Don't know if boys would appreciate. Visiting in from SITS!

  8. Oh my goodness...I am sooo NOT the crafty type. My family always jokes that my kids will only know how to text on the phone for extra curricular activities!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!
