For this project, you'll need construction or heavy paper, a ball point pen to poke the holes, a length of yarn and a piece of pipe cleaner. After poking the holes in your desired pattern, simply fold the pipe cleaner around the yarn to "make a needle." That's all there is to it, The pipe cleaner is stiff enough for little fingers to use with ease and without parental fear.

Although this idea was originally done on a small scale for a card or the like, we think it could also be great fun to do as a large scale project. A large piece of water color paper or Bristol paper (even matboard) would hang nicely on the wall in their bedroom. It suddenly makes us yearn for the amazing string art pieces of decades past!
