1 . With a pencil -Place 1 dot in each corner of the tile. The paper is no longer blank you have begun to make your beautiful art. Think of 4 things you are grateful for.Take a breath and relax.

2. With a pencil-Join each of those dots with a line. It can be straight or wonky. You now have a frame to place your beautiful work in.

3. With a pencil- draw your string. A random continuous line that creates 3 or 4 spaces.

4.Use the tangles learned or your own patterns to fill in the spaces.

5.When all the spaces are filled in, turn your tile around to appreciate. Find which way is top and bottom. Somewhere on the bottom sign with your initials.
