I saw this activity in a back issue of High 5 Magazine. Lu and Em love High 5. They love the stories, poems, hidden pictures and activities in High 5. Plus, getting something in the mail once a month is pretty exciting.
Why weaving? Weaving is great for improving:
Eye / Hand
Fine Motor Skills
Under / Over
Supplies: box lid, rubber bands, ribbons cut into workable sections
The great aspect to this activity is that your child can practice and then pullout the ribbons and start over again. The wider the elastics are apart the easier it is for smaller kids. Place the bands closer together if it is too easy for your child. We used a tie box. When we are done, the ribbons and rubber bands can be stored inside to be used again.
