A Family Quilt

  1. Provide tagboard for students.
  2. Have them draw a picture depicting their family doing what it likes to do most.
  3. Have them embellish the picture to make it look three-dimensional. For example: use yarn for hair, noodles, glitter sequins, pieces of fabric for clothes, etc.
  4. Using a hole-punch and yarn, sew them into a quilt!
