Process:

  • 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 could make these at different times of the year and talk about the changes in the plants.
