Paper Plate Weaving - Flowers


C (age 5), came home from Sunday school yesterday, with a partially completed craft, she was calling a flower. She was happy, with the help of her older sisters, to finish it up this morning, and to show E (age 6) how to make one, as well.

The first step was to cut slits around the edge of a paper plate, to make petals...


...then to weave pieces of string, back and forth, through the slits, to cover the petals...


...taping the loose ends, at the beginning and end, to the back to the plates.


I'm not entirely convinced they look like flowers, but I'm definitely going to be calling C's Sunday school teacher to thank her for the fun craft idea...


...and the nice Bible lesson, to start off our week.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

Our library did something similar with paper plates, but we went across the middle to make spider webs. My kids thought that was the coolest thing ever.

Now, I'm off to look up that verse.

It turned out beautifully. I love the verse in the center as well.
