Another fun yarn craft for your little ones at home. At some point in time most of us have probably made the Ojo de Dios, or God’s Eye. I can’t really pin point the time or place of my first creation, but I do remember making one out of white, green, and red and using it as a Christmas ornament. It is a simple weaving made across two sticks and is thought to have originated with the Huichol Indians of Jalisco, Mexico. Kids can easily create many of these colorful God’s Eyes by glueing two popsicle sticks together and weaving around them with bright variegated or multiple colors of yarn.
All you need is some glue, popsicle sticks, yarn, and sissors. Glue the two sticks together in a cross then take one end of the yarn and wrap it over and around one stick, then over and around the next, over and around the next and so on. Keep wrapping in this manner until the yarn is gone. For visual instructions click here. Enjoy! -B
