Back in December I posted about a trip I made to Illinois to visit my oldest daughter. She took me to a museum and there I saw a great idea that I could bring to the students at my elementary school. I couldn’t wait to show it to the kids!
Since noon art is during their lunch break, we really only have about half an hour to get the kids in and out. In that time, we usually serve between 75 and 150 students depending upon the project and the interest level. Set up is very important. Before this particular session, I prepared the cups and wound little balls of yarn (about 200 of them!).
Each student that came in to the multi purpose room for noon art took a cup and started weaving. They didn’t have to finish up a ball of yarn, they just wove as much as they wanted, cut the working yarn, added new yarn and kept weaving.
Many great woven cups were created!
For some reason, red, white and blue was a huge hit on this day. There were quite a few with this same color scheme.
The two above are just a sample of what was created – I did not have time to take pictures of all of them. But rest assured, they were all beautiful!!
