WiLd WeAvings

A three or four day weaving lesson for Kindergartners. It began with "measuring" or practice using a ruler as a straight edge and cutting the construction paper loom. Next, they wove paper cut with funky scissors, fabric strips, colored tin foil bent into organic lines, yarn and other textured fiber scraps through their loom. The weaving process took some students one day, others two. When finished I had a sponge painting station set up for students to add (or attempt) a painted pattern design. My students found painting on the multiple surfaces interesting. Fun and wild lesson that grew as we went!

This weaving project is awesome.
I love how the students incorporated pieces of fabric.
