Yarn wrapped crafts have always been a favorite of ours. We have made yarn wrapped hearts, dolls and even bumble bees, but nothing has ever seemed quite as fitting to be wrapped in yarn than these winter hats. These yarn wrapped winter hats are a cute, colorful and a wonderful craft and activity to exercise those fine motor skills.

What you will need:
Optional: Acrylic paint
Print out and cut the printable template.
Trace it onto a piece of cardboard and then cut it out. Smaller kids may need help with this as cardboard can be difficult to cut.
When your hat shape is cut out, you can choose to paint it or leave it unpainted. We made both. Make small cuts all around both sides of the hat.
Pick the color or colors of yarn that you would like your hat to be. Cut long strands or work straight from the ball of yarn. Start the yarn by hooking it between one of the small cuts.
Wrap your yarn straight across or wrap the yarn around randomly.
Add in other colors.
Wrap your hat as little or as much as you like.
When you are finished wrapping, glue cotton balls to the top of the hat and add furry accents anywhere else you like.
We also made a hat with painted cardboard.
