I publicly said that I would do a craft with my kids each week…and the very first week snuck up on me! LOL
BUT I was able to pull it out and make something that my kids think is kind of cute!
Happy New Year Banner
- construction paper
- hole punch
First I cut a triangle out of cardboard to use as a template. Then we traced 12 triangles on different colored construction paper. Then I had Connor cut out the triangles (most of them anyway). Next I told him what letters to write on each triangle. Then we punched a hole in each corner of all the triangles and weaved the yarn through them. Finally I taped up the banner and there we have it! A New Year’s Banner!
I’m pretty proud of this project on a few levels, but the teacher in me knows that I was able to hit the mother load of fine motor skills with this activity: tracing, cutting, lacing!
Post a link to your pictures if you try it!
Happy New Year!
