Print Making

This past year, I have very much been enjoying the discovery of loom knitting.  As a result, my stash of yarn leftover has exponentially increased!  What better way to use some of it than to make an art activity for the classroom?

Print making art activity at a table:  I used a hot glue gun to attach thick yarn around wooden blocks.  We chose to use the red paint to correspond with our color/number theme with the Short Bead Stair.

Imagine the open-ended creative possibilities!  
Such activities in the classroom not only allow children to enhance fine motor development, but they also provide opportunities for them to practice decision making and following sequences of lessons/activities.    

There is still a lot more yarn left - I am sure we will be using it for more art activities in the future!


  1. Love the texture and variation of this project! I need to bookmark this for a little later on in the school year…we aren't quite ready for paint :D

  2. Thanks, Heather. We may try prints with leaves coming up this month…
