Last week I posted about using cotton balls for pretend snowballs. Today I’ll show you how you can make “snowballs” out of white yarn. These super light-weight balls are excellent for teaching your baby to throw. Plus, they make for some great “snowball” fights since getting hit in the face with one of these won’t hurt a bit!
Here’s what you’ll need: white yarn and scissors!
|1. Cut a piece of white yarn about 9-12 inches long. Set it aside.|
|2. Start wrapping yarn around 4 of your fingers…*take your wedding ring off first* (which I failed to do).|
|3. Keep going until you can barely wiggle your fingers. I obviously won’t be in the running to become a hand model with these scuffed up paws.|
|4. Carefully slide off the clump of yarn and place it on top of the piece of yarn that you cut in Step 1.|
|5. Wrap the piece of string around the yarn clump and then pull as tight as you can without breaking the yarn. Tie a knot.|
|6. Cut the loops using sharp scissors.|
|7. Trip rogue yarn pieces as necessary. :)|
|They even look good for decoration as well!|
Just a warning…you will most likely find loose pieces of white yarn around your house every now and then. :)
