I just finished a seven week after school arts program where I taught knitting. The kids were in the 3rd to 5th grade range and did and awesome job. They made monsters–learning and practicing to knit the body the first few classes and then they moved on to body parts. For the last few classes we added embellishments using felt and other fun craft odds and ends. The kids did great and it was a blast! The middle photos are their monsters and the last photo is mine. The kids named my monster and created a sign for him.
