Sprout makes : mini weaves!

Weaving with your little ones can provide hours of entertainment! This tutorial will show you a really simple way of weaving that uses up your little scraps of ribbon and wool at the same time.

To get started you will need some empty fruit nets, a pair of scissors, some cardboard (I used cereal boxes), tape, plastic needles and a selection of wool and ribbons. When collecting your fruit nets, cut them open carefully to get the largest flat piece possible.

Stick the end of your net securely to the back of your cardboard. Gently pull the net across the front of your cardboard and secure the other end in place. Experiment with different types of nets to produce different shaped canvases!

Once you have made your canvases, simply thread different lengths of ribbon and wool onto your needle and start to weave them through the net.

Keep weaving until your net is full of colour and texture!
