Rumble This video demonstrates how to cut up supermarket plastic bags to make "yarn" used for knitting. I knit bags of different sizes and shapes, usually to hold therapy materials or groceries.

Making yarn works on many fine-motor skills as a child or adult
1) rolls up the supermarket bags
2) snips 4-5 pieces from each bag
3) stretches them open into giant plastic rings
4) knots them into a long chain

6) knits
