30 Creative Knitting Projects for Kids to Knit

There’s few things that bond us together as much as creating something with one another. Share that joy with your kids, and you’ll have taught them a skill that they can use for a lifetime. With the way kids are glued to their technology, it’s more rewarding than ever to pull yourself away from the screen and get to actually working with your own two hands. You may be surprised – you already know how addicting knitting is – but your kids might catch the bug, too!

We’ve got kittens, cute rugs, hats, and holiday decor all compiled together for you to choose from. Take some time out of your day and get crafty with your kids. These knitting projects are super easy and suitable for kids to make, but you’re going to love them too.
