As a part of my Little Elves and the Shoemaker unit, I always introduce several hand working projects. One of my favorite things to do is weaving. It is simple and the children love the process. I found this grapevine "ribbon" at Michael's for $5 and their holiday ribbon was 50% off. Perfect!
Weaving is a wonderful way to build the pincer grasp for writing and develop fine motor control.
HOW TO DO IT:
Simple - give the children ribbons to weave. I let the children loose to weave how ever they wish!
