Weaving with Old Cards

Published by under Creating With Kids

weaving using old cards
Do you have heaps of birthday or christmas cards you do not know what to do with? Why not give them to the kids and get them to practice their weaving skills.  This craft is probably suitable for kids aged 4 and up.
For this weaving we used the front of 2 gift cards (similar sizes).
1. On one card I cut slits about 1.5cm apart, leaving a 1cm boarder uncut on each side.
2. With the second piece of card cut strips long ways.
3. Then thread your long strips through the slits in the first card
Presto your very own weaving!

Make Your Own Parachute

Published by under Creating With Kids

Make Your Own Parachute
Making your own parachute is a great craft activity for kids and they will then enjoy playing with their creation for hours.  All you need is some tissue paper, raffia or string and a cotton reel.  As you can see from the photo it is relatively easy to make.
  • Fold your tissue paper into 4 to make a rectangle shape approximately 20cm x 8cm.
  • You can decorate your tissue paper in any creative way you like, or leave it plain
  • Make holes in the 4 corners of the tissue paper.
  • Cut 4 lengths of string each approximately 30 cm
  • Tie each length of string to each corner or the tissue paper
  • Thread all 4 pieces of string through the cotton reel and tie in a knot at the base of the cotton reel.
Now go outside, throw your parachute high in the air and watch it float down!
