Doing a Little Weaving

A couple of years ago, I went to a local thrift shop and found some wire baskets. Add a little ribbon and weave!


One boy really worked hard to weave the ribbon.





Notice that the yellow and green ribbons alternate weaving - just like it should.

A pair of girls worked together on a different basket.





I've done this in the past, but the interest wasn't as high as this group. As I look back through the photos, I noticed how focused they were. And the techniques they employed.

If you're looking for something to work those fine motor skills, this could do the trick.

(And, if you don't have any wire baskets, use a cooling rack or any wiry apparatus.)

  1. I love the weaving going on there Scott. We try to throw in different types of weaving throughout the school year too! With only 2 weeks, I wonder if we can squeeze one more day of weaving in!
