Weave a Colorful Yarn Mosaic
Mosaic art includes fixing items onto a base surface using glue or other bonding agent. Although most common mosaics use stone or glass as decorative material, this project for preschoolers relies on the more suitable substances of yarn and non-toxic glue. This activity will help your preschooler boost her fine motor skills, improve color recognition, and explore art materials. Also, by allowing your child to apply the glue with minimal adult help, you can assist her in building valuable self-regulation abilities.
Make this colorful yarn mosaic by reusing items from around the house. Try cutting out the back of a used cereal box for a base. For a larger family project, cut a piece of card board from a moving box, electronics box, or other medium sized box.
What You Need:
