Christmas maths projects at the String Art Fun website

Primary school teachers looking for a fun maths project for the Christmas term will find it at the String Art Fun website. The string art maths projects are suitable for Key Stage 2 Maths (8 – 11 years old). They include numbered patterns and maths questions sheets.

Designs can be created with pencils and ruler or drawing pins (thumb tacks) and string / wool.

There is a free maths project featuring a Christmas pudding with holly.

Religious patterns added at the String Art Fun website

String art picture making has much in common with prick and stitch card making. It uses nails hammered into a backing board and coloured wool or string to create the design.

Six new religious string art patterns have been added to the String Art Fun website. The patterns are a plain cross, a decorative cross, a cross on a hill, a dove, a girl praying and an angel.

The pattern size is approximately 300 mm x 210 mm (12 x 8½ inches). They are delivered by download to your computer in PDF format.

The patterns are available individually and in a value pack of six patterns for the price of five individual patterns.

The patterns are in the Religious section of the String Art Fun website.
