Seasonal weaving!

2017-06-19 10.04.32

It is always great to combine nature in our creating! This is a simple way to weave with natural treasures that can be found in the garden or park.

Need: craft sticks (lollypop sticks), glue, sting, natural find e.g. flowers and herbs. Optional: pens to decorate sticks.

I prepared the craft sticks by gluing four into a square, then tying 6 stings across to make the loom.

The children first decorated their sticks/loom- we used sharpies but any felt-tip pens would do.

We then found flowers and herbs and weaved them into the loom.

They looked great and smelt amazing! I think this could be done in any season – collecting different natural finds to weave.

Happy creating! xx
