"Huichol" Yarn Art~
We did this Art activity during one of our Social Studies Units. It is called Huichol (pronounced Wee-chol) Art. It was so much fun, and my 4th graders were totally engaged while working on their own Yarn Art.
I love the beach! One of the perks of living in San Diego, we have lots of beaches. So, I made my Huichol of a palm tree. Some of my kids made Angry Birds, cute little owls, suns, flowers, sea creatures, etc... I was going to provide them with a templates, but let them use their own creativity instead.
The only materials needed for this project are: beeswax cut into small squares or rectangles and glued to chipboard, different colors of yarn, and popsicle sticks to push the yarn into the beeswax.
