Kids Craft: Twig String Art
Nothing beats a creative project you can do with your kids with supplies you may already have on hand or can find outside! Bonus points for it also being an easy, quick activity with minimal mess. This project is perfect for making small Christmas ornaments if using small twigs, or in our case, we used the larger twigs we had on hand to make a decoration for the playhouse we have outside.
Break twigs into the desired size to form a triangle.
Connect the corners using string or twine to tie together.
Decorate with yarn, stringing across the triangle shape you have made. We also made a loop at the top of our triangle to be able to hang.
With my boys being interested in camping and the outdoors, this was the perfect little “touch” to their outside playhouse we built. It secretly helps with math skills (What does a triangle look like? How do I break and put together the twigs to make it look like a triangle? How many sides does a triangle have? And so on…) It also fosters the imagination and art side by deciding how to decorate and string the yarn across the twigs.
