Make a String Picture
You will need
Roll of string
1. Draw a pencil outline of the picture on the card. A flower, a car or any simple image will work best.
Variation: When the glue has dried, place a sheet of regular paper on top of the picture and show your child how to make a rubbing of the picture, using the flat edge of a pencil point.
Let your children experience the textures of different mediums and practice fine motor skills, like cutting and pasting. Tearing is also a good activity for developing fine motor skills.
