FREE activity FRIDAY: Laser Security System Fun out of Yarn!
My son loves to tie knots and he loves to “set booby traps” around the house. This is an awesome and inexpensive idea that allows kids to work on hand eye coordination and creativity! Where should we tie/loop the yarn? How much yarn should we use? What heights should we put the yarn? How should we wrap/tie the yarn? The possibilities are endless and so is the fun!
Thanks to My Home Life Magazine for this fun activity!
