Nature Weaving

Nature Weaving

Description:

Weaving promotes fine motor and hand eye coordination. This experience is a great opportunity to extend on literacy and numeracy through questions asked whilst your child is engaging in the experience.

Method:

  1. With your child’s help, collect four sticks and tie them together to create a frame.
  2. Wrap wool around either end to create a loom.
  3. Assist your child to collect leaves and foliage from the garden or bush to weave through the frame.
  4. Model to your child how to thread and over each piece of the loom.
  5. Assist your child to weave under and over the wool of the loom to create a weaving.

Promote learning by:

Discussing the process with your child – e.g., ‘can you find me four sticks the same size and thickness’ can start a discussion about size, measurement and counting. Promote literacy and numeracy by asking your child to find a specific number or colour of flowers and leaves to add to the weaving.
