Reinforce your child's observation skills by learning about lines with a simple activity that involves both drawing and movement.
Brainstorm with your child about different kinds of lines: straight, curved, angled , fat, thin, long , short, fast and slow lines. Work with your child to draw samples of the lines on index cards. Then ask him to walk through the house or outside to find examples of the different kinds of lines. You can also look for lines in works of art, magazine illustrations or photographs.
Use the large pieces of paper or newsprint to draw a variety of straight, curved and angled lines, and ask your child to walk or glide on the line path. You can also try this outside with chalk on the driveway or sidewalk. Expand this activity by asking your child to draw repeated line patterns.
