Weaving With the Littlest Ones

Kindergarten and first graders can have a little trouble remembering to alternate their weaving strips as they move from row to row.  Here is an experiment I am going to try where even if they forget I think it will all hold together pretty well!  The bases are pieces of paper.....Do you think that will be too floppy? I could staple them to card after they are finished weaving.  I have a gorgeous collection of fabric strips ready to use.

I've generally used cardboard as a loom and fat cotton string for warp when teaching beginning weaving. I look forward to hearing how this goes for you!

Hello Beth!
It's Annie, Jack, Jim and Karen from Rhode Island! We haven't looked at your blog in a long time and it's good to see old posts of us (the corn husk doll, weave basket). We miss you very much and can't wait to see you sometime this summer!
