Have fun hammering and make a colourful geometric picture.
Get the kids using some tools and make a bit of art at the same time.
This is a great way to use up offcuts of wood and ends of yarn.
What you’ll need:
Paint and paintbrush if you want to paint the plank first
Update May 2016: We got given a box of loom bands a while ago and I’m always trying to find new things to do with them so we gave them a go with our wood and nail pictures. Layer them over the nails and they create a lovely effect.
What to do:
Paint the plank and leave to dry.
Hammer in nails in random places over the plank, leaving 1-2cms poking out.
Wind wool around the nails to make patterns.
We made our nail and wool art in the garden.
This is a good project to return to, add different yarn, cut it off and start again. Loom bands are definitely worth a try too.
