Weaving is a fun activity that helps to develop your child’s fine motor skills. Although we have some great weaving frames available in our store, it does not necessarily require any purchased resources. Try making your weaving frame using string and a piece off cardboard recycled from packaging, incorporating some treasures found on a nature walk. There you have it - a free activity that promotes sustainability and teaches children to think resourcefully. 🌸💐🌺 Weaving helps to develop: 1️⃣Hand-eye coordination and concentration. 2️⃣Problem-solving skills. 3️⃣Understanding patterns and sequencing supports literacy and numeracy development in later education. 4️⃣Language development when discussions are had alongside the weaving process.
