Make your own shapes or download the patterns provided. Have the children cut and color their shapes. Use the hole punch to put holes in the top of each shape. Cut varying lengths of the string or yarn and thread them through the holes in the shapes. Take two dowels and place one on top of another in a cross formation. Tape them together. Tie the strings to the dowels. Tie one length of string to the dowels at the point where they cross for hanging.
