A Needle Felting Party for Kitty! - The Magic Onions

A Needle Felting Party for Kitty!

Kitty turned 11 the other day.

Poor Kitty! Her birthday is so close to Christmas that we are usually all-partied-out by the time her special day comes around. But this year we made a big effort to celebrate her birthday with a party for her and her class friends.

She decided that she wanted to have a needle felting party.

I made little green landscapes for them to work with. (I have an easy to follow tutorial on how to make these playmats here.)

I collected all of my roving scraps so that they had a kaleidoscope of colors to choose from.

They loved needle felting so much.  It’s the perfect craft for eleven year olds!

At first, I sat with them and showed them the basics of needle felting but, in no time at all, they were creating their own little treasures. They took to it immediately.

I made them tea and toast with marmite and reveled in their excited, eleven-year-old chatter and beautiful, pure imaginations.

Look at what fun they had. And at the beautiful landscapes they made with toadstools, bridges and bunnies…

Thank you, sweet girls, for making Kitty’s birthday so special.

Blessings and magic,

  4. I love this idea for a birthday party for that age group; so soothing and fun to do something crafty and quiet as opposed to the usual ideas that surface about. They all did such a wonderful job!
