Then, we recycled old paper for the weaving part. In the copy rooms, we have boxes full of paper that people have discarded while copying. I used this paper for this project. Basically, we just twisted the paper and stapled it to the cardboard. Then we weaved some of the paper horizontally. Lastly, we painted each strip with watercolors.
I found this awesome project on Art Lessons For Kids . I only had one hour to do this lesson, which was almost not enough time. If you can, you will want to stretch this over multiple days.
