YarnCraft – Summer Crafting with Kids 05 :: Make Memories & Keep Your Kids Entertained While Traveling
Savor the end of summer with trips, family memories, and crafting! On today’s episode, Liz & Zontee discuss ways to keep your kids entertained on long trips, and also how to use crafting to capture memories of your trip to enjoy for years to come. From fun projects for long car rides to easy projects that are road-friendly, we have great ideas for you and your family. We also get inspiration from Michelle Edwards’ story, Road Scarf, for a yarn-creation as travel journal.
We talk about hostess gifts that you can make in preparation for a visit to friends and family, mentioning our fun tour of the Lion Brand Yarn Studio with the Studio Squirrels.
Patterns discussed include:
- Summer Vacation Photo Album
- Holiday Gift Bag Set
