Yarn Llamas

I wish I could take credit for this idea, but my 3 year old brought it home from school.  I wanted to share it because I thought it was so cute, and not just because Drew is obviously such a talented artist and borderline genius.  (Did I take that too far?)

If you want to make your own, you can choose one of the llamas from here and print it onto cardstock.  Cut it out, punch holes in it and loop some yarn through!
At school, the teacher paired this with Is Your Mama a Llama? about the little llama looking for his mama who is answered in rhymes and riddles by other baby animals describing their mamas. My little ones like to shout out the name of the animal before we turn the page.
This activity would work well with any of the Llama Llama books too!
