DIY Art Center Yarn Cans

I put together these cute yarn cans for my self-help art shelf. They are easy to make and keep the yarn contained and neat. I used plastic mason jars, but any plastic container with a lid will do. Simply fill the container with yarn, poke a hole in the lid, and pull a small amount of yarn through the hole. The children can then pull out the length of yarn they want, and cut with scissors (this may take some supervision with younger children). Finally, label the can with the corresponding color name of yarn.

MATERIALS USED:

– Yarn
– Plastic containers with lids

Free Kite Scissor Skills Printables

St. Patrick’s Day is over, and we have had our fill of rainbows. So for the last few days, it’s been all things kites in the classroom. The end of the school year is creeping upon us, and I needed to see where some of my kids are at with their scissor skills. I made these kite cutting sheets, which proved to be a fun way to assess their progress.

There are 3 free printables available: one straight line, one curvy, and one zigzag.
