I keep looking for new ways to introduce students to weaving, and this one is working our pretty well for my students this week. Paper strips are woven in between rubber bands, which keep them from sliding out.
PREP: Glue a frame for each student with craft glue. Let dry for at least a couple of hours before working with them. Also, cut lots of strips of card stock paper with a paper cutter, 1/4″ wide or so.
1. Students slide seven or eight 2.5″ rubber bands onto their frame.
2. They weave paper strips in between the bands until the board is full. Edges are trimmed.
3. A hanger string is tied around the top stick.
