Circle weaving

Kids craft activities - circle weaving

MATERIALS: Cardboard, sticky tape, wool, mixture of cord or torn fabric strips.

AGE: 4+

I made this with my 4yr old but I'll admit he lost interest about half way through. (Mumma finished the rest and had lots of fun!) For younger ones use chunky wool or cord so the weaving grows quickly and they don't loose interest.

You can also add in beads in the threads to decorate.

TUTORIAL:

    Cut cardboard circles, mine were 30cm diameter. The cut an odd number of slots around the edge.

        Secure wool at the back with tape and start wrapping it around the circle to make spokes.

            On the last spoke, bring the wool to the center and knot to secure.

                Start weaving under and over all the way around your circle.

                    To change colour cords just knot the ends together and continue weaving.
