Simple Weaving

This is a very simple little project for Kindergarteners or first graders, plus it's a great way to use up scraps of fabric, felt and trim. I simply used white glue to attach the four large popsicle sticks. The red string is a lightweight cotton yarn. I tied each piece to the popsicle stick and secured them with a drop of glue. You will want an odd number of strings so that the ends of the cloth are both either "over" or "under" the end sticks.
I had a tray with these materials set up at an art camp this summer. It was an activity about the process as much as the end product, and did not involve any messy clean-up.
