Doesn’t it feel like summer came and went this year? For many of you, the weather
might be starting to feel a bit crisper, the leaves will start changing soon, and — the
most significant change of all — kids are headed back to school. With COVID-19
restrictions in place, this season might look a bit different for some families. Whether
your kids are headed back into the classroom or staying home this fall for virtual
classes, needle felting is a great way to mark the change of seasons and celebrate
going back to school!
Here are our thoughts on how you can use needle felting to make this season of
heading back to school even better!
Make back to school gifts.
If anyone deserves a little extra love during this back to school season, it’s teachers!
Show your appreciation by getting the family involved in making some gifts for the
teachers at your school! Planning for a school year without knowing what to expect can
be stressful, so getting gifts from their students will go far in making your teachers feel
Consider making them something cute that can decorate their desks, like a needle
felted apple or one of our adorable animal sculptures! For some fun inspiration, browse

Integrate needle felting into the art curriculum
If you happen to be homeschooling your kids or in charge of administering some sort of
art curriculum during the day, consider needle felting as part of their learning! Not only is
needle felting a useful craft and one that kids can take on in life with them, but it’s also
highly creative! Grab one of our beginner felting kits and get to work! Parents, this might
be a subject you’ll enjoy too!
Create projects with your kids that coincide with their curriculum
Not only is needle felting together a fun way to spend intentional family time, but it’s also
a great way to make sustainable toys and models that relate to your school curriculum.
Get creative with your kiddos and pick a piece of their curriculum to translate into a
needle felting project. For example, if your kids are studying the solar system, create a
needle felted version of the solar system for them to enjoy at home!
Parents, this one’s for you!
While you might be looking forward to some extra time at home alone, you’ll likely start
to miss your little ones and needs some extra distractions during this season! Our
Needle Felting Academy is a great way to feel involved in a community and make
connections with like-minded people! You’ll have the chance to grow your needle felting
skills and communicate and collaborate with other members!
