Yarn line painting is another fun and simple activity in our homemade fun series! Who needs paintbrushes, right?! Let’s explore our creativity and paint with yarn! Your child can create interesting designs while exploring pattern sequencing, color recognition, and fine motor.


What’s Next:

  1. Depending on your child’s ability, have them cut various lengths of yarn or string.
  2. Next, have them wrap the blocks creating different line patters — great fine-motor boost!
  3. Tape one end, wrap, than tape the other end  to hold the yarn in place.  I chose to tie a knot on each end.  Either method works well. {Tip} Use varying sizes of blocks and spread the lines further apart to create more distinctive lines.
  4. Squeeze a small amount of paint on a paper plate, less is more!  Different thickness of yarn or string and different shaped blocks will change the lines too. We used rectangles and squares.
  5. Encourage your child to create different lines with each block.  Overlap the colors to make interesting designs. Need some bling? Add glitter for extra sparkle! Set aside to dry.
