They suggested giving each child a piece of yarn and twist it to make different letters. My kids had so much fun- I thought I would extend the activity by spelling their names in glue and cutting the yarn into much smaller pieces.
I thought this was a great modification... until I saw how hard the kids struggled with it. (I mean, glue is sticky and tricky to get the yarn to stick and not pull back up on their now, very sticky fingers.) YET- they were determined and diligent! They didn't get frustrated at all... in fact... they really stepped up to the challenge and felt great about their accomplishment when it was finished.
I love my group of little ones. They amaze me every day!
