  25. 25. Crafts<br />Kindergarten<br />Nazca Lines<br />The Nazca Lines are lines on the plains of Peru that create pictures when <br />viewed from high in the sky. No one knows for sure who made them; <br />some Peruvians believe they are pictures for the gods to view. <br />Children can create miniature versions of these lines with construction paper, <br />glue and sand. Each child draws an animal, person or other object from nature<br /> on construction paper using simple outlines and general details. Then, the<br /> children follow their pencil lines with a bead of white glue and cover the paper <br />with sand. The sand can be brown or colored craft sand; whatever the children <br />prefer. When the glue dries, the children shake off the excess sand leaving only<br /> the sand that stuck to the glue that outlined their Nazca lines.
