A Snowy Quilt


Prepare for each child an 8-inch square of blue felt. Punch holes -inch from the edge on all sides of the square. Give each child a 40-inch long piece of white shoelace or white yarn. Knot one end of each child's shoelace and have children lace up and down through the holes around their squares. When each child has finished, knot the ends of the laces together. Help each child use a paintbrush and white non-toxic acrylic paint to create a snowflake design on his or her square. You may suggest that children start their designs by painting intersecting lines to form the snowflake. Let the squares dry overnight. Make your quilt by displaying squares next to one another with small pins on a bulletin board.
