Creating yarn pictures is a simple exploration of abstract art and a fine motor exercise. It is also good practice using glue! Included is a book recommendation that fits perfectly with the creative art project.
Yarn pictrures can be completed indoors or out. If you have a beautiful day outside, take your supplies outdoors. Sit in the driveway or on the grass to create!
NEXT STEP: Create!!
The directions are simple, your child creates on their paper by drawing with the glue then placing yarn along the glue lines.
When the kids said they were finished, I asked them to tell me about what they created. When I was teaching I always asked children to tell me about their art so I could write their description on their paper. This extends any art activity to include literacy and print awareness.
A great children’s book that fits perfectly with this yarn art activity for preschool is the book The Squiggle. You can check it out on Amazon here:
