weaving at preschool


Plastic garden mesh makes a perfect - and inexpensive - weaving frame for little fingers.

Team the mesh up with lengths of brightly coloured ribbon.

  5. How funny - I've just returned from a gardening centre where I was trying to decide whether to buy this mesh or the flexible netting which can be draped more easily around structures. In the end I just bought herbs for my garden.

  6. I have wanted to do large weaving with my children, and hadn't thought of garden mesh! This works well, and the photos are very nice.
    I have,seen a very nice post on wall weaving at Flight of Whimsey, as well.

  7. What a great idea. We're just getting back into the garden after all the rain and we certainly have enough natural materials and otherwise to weave with!
