Fashion Angels Lawn String Art
(Fashion Angels $21.99)
A crafty way to get kids outdoors. Fashion Angels String Art kit comes with big heart—a template that's used to guide kids in shaping the outline of the heart with 25 big lawn stakes. Once in place, the template comes out, but the numbered pattern can be used to make a complex design…or… forget the company's numbers and create an original criss-crossed design with the 40 yards of thick multi-colored yarn in the kit. You may need to explain that their creation cannot be a permanent work of art, its long-term effects on the lawn might not be too decorative. But, turn that into a positive possibility; talk about other forms they might make with the stakes and yarn. A fun way to get kids outside and away from their small screens…but don’t forget to apply some sun screen to them!
