Weaving provides children with an opportunity to develop their fine motor skills and concentration. With this very simple project you can use lots of different texture materials including yarn, ribbon, fabric strips, cord or paper to weave.
Cut a thick, sturdy piece of cardboard for your weaving loom base. Ours measured 15x20cm. Cut evenly spaced slots along the top and bottom and then thread string across your loom base, securing the ends of the string at the back with tape.
Gather a selection of materials to weave and begin threading them over and under your strings. keep weaving until your reach the bottom of your loom.
You could also try weaving with natural materials like grasses, flowers and leaves to make a beautiful nature weaving project!
