Paper (two sheets of contrasting color/design)
Ages: Preschool and Elementary
Why I Like It: This is a great introduction to weaving concepts! It requires minimal materials and you can scale it to whatever size you need. (Take a mini weaving in the car! Make a large weaving in the yard!)
TIP: Use old artworks (especially ones that have "mistakes") and give them new life!
Ages: Elementary to Adult
Why I Like It: Making the loom helps young artists understand the concept of weaving. Once they master simple weaving patterns, they can try adding textures and patterns!
Ages: Elementary and Middle School
Why I Like It: Reminiscent of a spider's web, this project will automatically intrigue young artists! It is a great project to take in the car (just make sure you cut yarn ahead of time!).
