I use yarn for a lot of different things in the classroom and I have tried a few different techniques for trying to keep the yarn from becoming either a tangled mess, or an unraveled nightmare that would delight my baby kitty. I just recently made a trip to our local recycled supply store (also known as teacher heaven) and stumbled across this genius trick. I love that it also happens to be a great reuse of my Kirkland Mixed Nuts containers that I have always saved, but never quite known what for! Now I do!
1 good size plastic container with a lid
1 power drill with a 1/2 inch bit
I had Dad2punkerdoo help me with the drill, because he's just really good with that kind of stuff. He made sure the lid was screwed tightly on the container, eyeballed the center, and then in about 3 seconds drilled a perfectly sized hole. I simply placed my yarn inside, threaded the end through the hole, and ta-da...there you have it! A simple DIY solution for keeping your yarn from becoming a mess.
