Playgroup Activity: Tracing with Yarn

Here's a fun activity to help your child get excited about writing. It's also a great practicing tool.

What you'll need:

                 Sandpaper                                   Crayons                                                  Yarn

Cut the yarn into several pieces of different lengths. Then draw some shapes and letters on a piece of sand paper with crayon. You can usually find sandpaper sheets at your local hardware store but try the dollar store first. They'll probably have it for cheap. The yarn pieces will actually stick to the sand paper as your child traces the letters and shapes. Who knew? This is a great activity to do in a playgroup and is really easy.
