Make a nature weaving


These little weavings are super easy and fun to make . They are easy to make when you are in the park, on the beach or at home.

You will need:

•Stiff cardboard

•String or twine


•Flowers, feathers, leaves or anything really



We went for a walk in the woods to collect some wild flowers , we also used some herbs we had growing at home.

Cut little 1 cm slats about 1 cm apart along opposite sides of your cardboard.

Tuck in your twine at the back and wind your twine up and down your cardboard and then tuck the end piece in.

Now you are ready to weave your flowers or leaves.

The process of making these is the most important thing. It’s a great opportunity to chat about the names of plants & flowers. You can make these at different times of the year and talk about the differences in the plants.
