Craft Ideas & Activities

Stringing Together

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 5th grade / 5 - 10 years

This is a great way to help students “break the ice.” Start by cutting string or yarn into pairs of varying lengths; there should be one piece for every student. If you have an odd number of students, take a piece yourself. Distribute the pieces, and tell students that their challenge is to find the person with the string that is the same length as theirs. After everyone has found their match, they should take turns introducing themselves to their partner. You can provide a list of questions (see our downloadable list) to help them “break the ice,” or you can come up with the questions as a group. To extend the activity, invite students to introduce their partner to the class!
