Introduction

This make is fun to create and allows your child to experiment with different colours and textures. The activity also helps your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they draw and cut out each picture, punch holes through the card and thread the wool back and forth to weave the nest. It's a bit fiddly in places (eg making the holes in the card) so your child may need some help.

How to extend the magic

Have a go at making some more woven pictures. You could create a cobweb effect and cut out a spider to sit in the middle, a thatched roof on a cottage or a tree with lots of criss-crossing branches. If you prefer, you could just make up your own criss-cross pattern using different-coloured wool.
