::: weaving magic
Weaving not only creates a fabulous work of art, it can be a wonderful group activity and is also excellent for working those little fingers.
We have done group weavings in the past using a big box …
At Dover Street Preschool they did weaving on a wooden frame.
We found an old bike on the roadside rubbish and took off the wheels.
Looks a bit sad, doesn’t it?
We added some ribbons and wool…
and let the children go for it!
We popped it up on the fence when it was finished. OK, so three year olds aren’t great weavers, but they worked together as a team and had fun!
Next time we might try weaving this tennis racquet – we’ll keep you posted.
