This is a fun weaving activity which costs next to nothing. It's a great hand/eye coordination activity for younger children. My 3 year old found it frustrating and needed lots of help but was very proud of her final creation.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Medium

Materials
Popsicle (lolly) sticks
A selection of materials to weave such as wool, pipe cleaners, ribbon, strips of fabric or coloured cellophane
Sticky tape (optional)

Start materials


Method
Cross two popsicle sticks and secure them with sticky tape, wool or pipe cleaners

Cross the popsicle sticks and secure


Stick your first piece of material to weave near the crossing point of the popsicle sticks (or tie it on if you prefer)
Weave the material by looping it round each popsicle stick in turn. You can stick or tie down the ends when you have finished

Why not try using more popsicle sticks in a star shape for a more complicated weave? Or you could use silver wool to make a spider's web or snowflake. Please upload a picture of your creation via the comments section - we'd love to see it!
