Easy summer craft for kids

What you'll need:

  • two sticks
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • glue

What you'll do:

  1. Cut a piece of yarn that is 2 inches long.
  2. Hold the two sticks together so that they are parallel to each other. Tie the yarn around the center of the sticks to hold them together.
  3. Rotate the sticks so that they form an "x."
  4. Working in a clockwise direction, start wrapping the yarn around the sticks, one stick at a time.
  5. Keep wrapping the yarn around the sticks until the yarn reaches the end of the sticks.
  6. Cut the yarn and glue the tail of the yarn to the back side of the God's eye.
