DIY yarn machine in preschool

in DIY, Yarn Machine

This is a simple way I use for children to get their own yarn and to help keep the yarn organized in the process…..

I call this my yarn machine. It is very basic – you just drop a ball of yarn (make sure it is a ball) in a tissue box then thread one end of the yarn through either the top of the box or through a hole in the side of the box…

These boxes are actually taped together so I can pick up the entire unit and put it away…

I use the tissue boxes as individual boxes too like when we made our spider webs yesterday…

I was going to paint or cover each box with paper the same color as yarn in the box but decided that it was fine like it is for now. The kids can easily tell which color of yarn is in each box based on the thread that is coming out of the box…

So – there you have it! My DIY Yarn Machine:)
