Having Fun With Strings

String is an economical item that can be used in various ways when it comes to doing activities with kids. It is also good in helping them to develop their fine motor skills. 

Here are some activities we did with strings that JS enjoyed. Some were not so tough like the "lace-it-anyway-you-want" around a dish cover and dying them in different colours, but he found making pictures with them to be extremely challenging. 

JS lacing a string around a dish cover.
JS trying out "String Art".

JS dying strings in different colours.
Hanging the dyed strings up to dry.
JS trying his hand at another "String Art" activity which he finds extremely challenging. 
And yes, these activities would easily take up as few sessions to complete. Perhaps you and your children could have a week of fun with strings too!
