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.

Cross the popsicle sticks and secure
Weave in and out of the popsicle sticks, looping round any way you want to
We used unusual materials like pipe cleaners and strips of coloured cellophane as well as wool and string
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!
