This string art activity pack makes beautiful, geometric designed creations.
Each pack makes 10 string artworks. Materials supplied in the kit include: 10 x wooden MDF bases (15x15cm), 500 nails, 2 rolls of coloured bakers twine and 1 roll of natural jute twine.
String art is a wonderful classroom project and is a creative way of introducing children to maths (geometry). It is simply an arrangement of coloured threads strung between points to form geometric patterns and designs.
Simply paint and decorate your wooden base board, then trace a design onto the board surface. Hammer in your nails at desired intervals. Thread the string around the nails to make beautiful geometric patterns.
For an alternative design idea, add wool, embroidery thread, yarn or pipe cleaners instead of the supplied twine.
Recommended for children Ages 8+. Adult supervision recommended.
Pack makes 10.
