Picture Weaving

Just before Christmas, while I was doing a craft supply run at Hobby Craft, I came across a giant weaving loom that they had. Not only could you do normal weaving on it, but for younger children they had pictures that you could weave like some sort of jigsaw. It really was a clever idea to help younger children get the idea of how to weave. As this loom was massive, and I mean massive, I thought it would be a really great idea to make our own busy bag version of this.

Make sure you follow my busy bag board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Pictures
  • Scissors
  • Wool/string

Cut notches into the top and bottom sides of your cardboard and then wrap the wool around so that you make your loom.

Find some pictures you like and cut them up. I edited some photos to make them bigger and then printed them out. You don’t want them too small to begin with as smaller children may struggle with them. Once they have mastered using bigger versions then you can always make them smaller. I also laminated mine so that they will last longer.

Then you are ready to let your little one start to weave.

Not only is this a great activity to help them develop cognitive skills but it is also a great introduction to sewing. Once they have grasped the idea of going over and under, then they can start to sew as well.

YC really enjoying having a go at one. She really picked up the whole over/under movement very quickly.
