  • Colored Craft Paper
  • Letter "Y" Cutout
  • Elmer's Glue
  • Scissors 
  • Yarn
  • Marker



Set Up:

We started by cutting long strips of yarn.  I oped to do a thin line of glue and wrap my yarn around my letter "Y", my son had more fun covering his "Y" in glue and glueing down long and short strips of yarn to his letter... mostly I think he liked being able to play with scissors and cut the yarn.  Both ways worked out great.

We finished by talking about strings and how they can be used to make things like fabric, carpet, and rope.  I had him look at his shirt and find the hem so he could see the thin string used to hold his shirt together, then we looked at our shag rug to see how the lots of little stings formed the soft carpeting and we finished by looking at a rope and seeing how all the stings wound together made for a really strong rope.
