Simple Paper Weaving

I've taught variations of paper weaving in the past, but hadn't seen any like this until this year  from other district art teachers. By simply adding thin strips on top of the thicker ones, they look deceptively complicated. Some of my kids really took off with the idea. Originally, I had planned to have them add smaller shapes to make these more interesting, but the end of the year seemed to come too quickly. These  are first graders.


  1. They're gorgeous! A bit like contemporary tartans.

  2. I do a similar weaving project with my 2nd graders, only I add the extra element of using patterned and metallic papers.I posted about it here:

    I love the way they look so much more complex than they really are.
