Free knitting patterns for Pan Protectors - Life Beyond the Kitchen had a great idea to replace paper or store bought protectors for stacked pans with knitted protectors. She offers 4 knitting patterns but you can make your own. You can even re-purpose leftover knitting swatches. Great stash buster!
Straw weaving. This is fun. I did this with all my fifth grade classes this past school year. They loved it! Sucking the yarn through the straws got a lot of giggles! :) Easy project! "Over, under, over, under...go around & do the same thing again on the other side!" Tip: Don't get the straws that bend at the top! Good idea for basic preposition craft.
