My third grade students made these beautiful nature weavings. It has been beautiful weather here the last couple of weeks, a perfect time to take our art outdoors! First, we made a frame out of sticks, hotgluing the sticks in place. The corners were then reinforced with twine. Then, the students created their loom by wrapping yarn around their frame vertically and horizontally. Once their loom was made, we went outside and collected natural objects for our weaving. The weaving pictured above makes me smile huge when I see it; the student proclaimed after placing the yellow leaf in it, "Look! The yellow leaf gave it spirit!"
