We tried a new weaving activity this week. I put out a variety of metal/wire baskets (and a couple of plastic ones) that had openings. Add a few lengths of ribbon and encourage the kids to weave.

P and H worked on one together. (It's always great to see kids working together on a project.)

H continued on it alone, alternating colors.

M decided to try some fancy weaving. I'm impressed with how she was able to get the ribbons to stay in the formation she made it.

The kids began on this particular project late in the day so they didn't get to spend a lot of time on the weaving before parents arrived. But they seemed to enjoy experimenting. We'll try it again.

Cost was super cheap. I found all the baskets at the thrift store. The ribbon was on sale at the craft store!

Another idea: Use cooling racks. (See Prekinders blog.)
