Paper weaving

I spent ages as a child paper weaving. I had lots of fabulous ready made kits and ended up with creations like the one enclosed. I could not find anywhere sets like this and ended up cutting one myself. My little one coloured it and finished it all by herself with a bit of frustration when she skipped strips, but got there eventually.

What you need:

  • a few sheets of coloured paper;
  • a pair of scisors.

Cut long strips of paper of various colours, about the size of your little finger. Take another sheet of paper, fold it in two and cut the middle horizontally leaving enough space of uncut paper on the edges (see image). Unfold and start weaving with the strips. Pull through – skip one, pull through – skip one and start with the oposite for next round.
