Kids DIY: Felt Woven Bracelets

Sunday afternoons for us are thankfully quiet and mellow but can sometimes drag on if I don’t have any activities for the kids. Little hands were briefly occupied by this easy weaving project and fine motor skills activity that comes together quickly with just a few basic materials.

You will need: sheets of colored felt, scissors, an X-acto knife, self-healing cutting mat, and lastly, glue dots (not pictured).

Cut out strips of felt long enough to wrap around your child’s wrist. We made a thicker, 2″ cuff of sorts, and a thinner 1″ bracelet. With your X-acto knife, cut out slits in the felt. You can make a more complex pattern with smaller slits or make a single row of wide slits (like in yellow bracelet below) for younger kids.

Nest, cut out weaving strips in contrasting colors. These need to be narrow enough to fit through the slits.

When finished weaving, trim off any excess felt with a pair of scissors.
