Plant Weaving

Encouraging children to explore our natural resources is such a wonderful opportunity to promote curiosity and discovery through wonderful sensory experiences.
Our group of Crafty cherries learned to create simple looms that kids can carry around to collect nature treasures.The first thing we find are our sticks,you need four to do each loom. Next, we gather what we will weave with.We collected a variety of flowers and plants.We tied a knot at one end of the top stick then zigzagged my way across the loom,wrapping the yarn around twice to hold it in place at each spot.Once the loom is ready, you can start to weave the plants through the thread.Once complete, you have a little nature tapestry to display.Displaying them is so much fun though and they still look beautiful after they dry out.
