Kids Helping Kids--Making a Textured Book

This elementary school student really enjoyed measuring, cutting, gluing lengths of yarn onto a preschooler's textured book.   We cut 3" lengths of the pink yarn and 5" lengths of the blue.
 Of course, we had to cut tiny snips of yarn for the piggy's ears...
 and the piggy tail.
The student said, "It looks like waves!"

Many opportunities for improving pinch, bilateral coordination, motor planning and expanding attention span.

If I had been doing this by myself I would have used a stronger glue, but I felt using Elmer's glue was safer for my helper.
