Get out your yarn and encourage your children to draw with them and use their imagination. This activity is great for all ages and abilities.
I gave each child a strand of yarn and a white piece of cardboard. I asked the children to lay the cardboard on the floor and explained that this was going to be their very own canvas.
I drew simple shapes on index cards and showed them to the children. I encouraged them to use the strand of yarn to draw the shape they saw on the card. I started with simple shapes and lines and moved on to more complex shapes.
These are the children's interpretation of what they saw.
As they progressed, I asked them to draw what ever they liked.
A Yummy Ice Cream Cone
That’s Me Sitting on The Floor.
A Bad Snake with a Big Head.
The children made adaptations and modifications to suit their creative needs. They gathered three dimensional objects to add to their drawings.
