It’s another FUN FRIDAY! Finger Knitting is something you can do at any point during the year. It promotes creativity, self confidence and giving to others. What interesting and creative activities do you have to keep kids busy without placing them in front of the TV or video game? Link Up (or comment with) your activities so we can become inspired by you to get creative with our kids. Remember we are only young once!
.That afternoon we went to the Sewing Club that Walden provides to see how to do it, because I for one had no idea. Jackson and I were going to learn together. We then headed start for Jo Ann’s to pick out some yarn. We each got want we wanted and headed home to figure out finger knitting together. We searched You Tube for tutorials and found one that was simple to follow along. After a good 20 minutes of watching the video and attempting to finger knit – he FINALLY got it. I still was learning, and he then showed me.
Children can also get a sense of what it feels like to accomplish something from beginning to end. They can see the progress they have made which encourages them to keep going. It takes no time at all to knit a 4ft long scarf which can be given as a gift to a family member or friend. You can also donate your creations to difference service project throughout the United States. By doing this, you are teaching your child to give back to someone in need.
