Metal Cloth Embroidery Art
Help your preschooler make colorful metal cloth embroidery art using using only a metal screen, a few lengths of yarn, and other decorations. Your child will practice color recognition and develop her fine motor skills while she weaves the yarn in and out to create her design. At the end she'll have a colorful piece of art to hang on her wall!
Metal hardware cloth is a steel wire screen that is often used for the tops of hamster cages and it comes in various gauges. For this project, look for hardware cloth with a 1/4" mesh. If you can't find hardware cloth, you can also use soffit screen, which is similar to hardware cloth but more pliable.
