Third Annual Letter Y

Last week as I walked into school to attend little Chloe's musical, Stone Soup, I was greeted by a staff person who ask if I was there to "yarnbomb." I guess my reputation has preceded me; and I'll take that! "No," I replied, "Not until next week."

I am so pleased that I was invited back again this year to talk to the kids about yarn and yarnbombing; this is the week that they are learning all about the letter "Y!" When Chloe was in Junior Kindergarten 2 years ago, I was there; and this year Jack is in "J/K," as they call it, with the same wonderful teachers, Mrs. B and Mrs. S.

 Jack was a great help and so excited to be "on stage."

First-grader, Chloe, joined in too, as my assistant.

Since March is National Crochet Month sponsored by CGOA,,the timing is perfect for me to contribute my time, my enthusiasm for yarn/crochet, and my displays of yarn-related items to inspire youngsters to get involved with yarn crafts.

Show & Share

On their own, these 2 teachers were inspired 2 years ago by yarnbombing; and they will dedicate some time after I leave to let the kids do their own around the school. That's what I call "starting them young!"

How will you be celebrating National Crochet Month?
Update...the yarn bombing continues...the kids bombed the porch of a house nearby that is used for administration; done by popular demand!



Later in the week we bombed Mrs. S's mailbox and tree!
