Supplies:

  • Yarn, string, or thin strips of fabric (3 or 4 colors is best)

  • Scissors

  • Ruler

  • Lolly sticks

  • Tape

  • Glue

  • 2 Cardboard strips (15cm x 3cm)

  • Piece of cardboard (15cm x 18cm)

Why I Like It:

This is an excellent step-by-step tutorial that makes weaving simple and accessible. I love that a child who enjoys it could spend hours creating coasters or mini rugs. The tutorial also integrates art history.

Supplies:

  • Pencil, Markers, Etc

  • Paper

Ages:

  • Elementary

Why I Like It:

Mo Willems is the Mr. Rogers of the art world! He broadcasts a daily doodle everyday, in which he demonstrates a drawing and talks to kids about life. It is comforting, educational, and inspiring!
