Extra Yarn!

A Project to Brighten Our Library


Extra Yarn, by Mac Barnett, tells the story of Anabelle, a girl with a magical box of never-ending yarn. She used her yarn to brighten her world.

"It looks like an ordinary box full of ordinary yarn. But it turns out it isn't."

1st and 3rd grade students decided that our library is a bit too gray. We had lots of branches on the ground & decided to use some extra yarn from around our school to turn the dull branches into a colorful tree to brighten up our space.


All we needed for this project was...

  • A few tree branches

  • Some extra yarn

  • Lots of creativity!

Check Back Soon to See What Happens When We Put All of Our Branches Together!
