During summer camps, I like to add a variety of activities. While most weavings seem daunting for a short 4 day camp, these small cardboard weavings are perfect!
Not only do they have the fun of weaving, but also designing the loom. This year, I decided on a cupcake theme. While I don't have many photos of the finished product, these few will give you an idea of the completed project.
I simply love that this is a great introduction to weaving, and those who already know how, well this is a great refresher!
Below are a few examples from last years weaving on fish looms.
Cereal boxes and other pressed cardboard make an excellent source for the looms. Plus, it is a great way to reuse! Saving the earth, one art project at a time... Seriously, though, it is a great way to teach resourcefulness. And a great way to cut down on expenses.
