A Paper Weaving Morning

Paper weaving. Classic paper craft that for some reason, Spud and I have never done together before. I used to love this kind of activity when I was his age.

Practiced skills: fine motor, creative decision making, patience, focus on details, and accepting imperfections in your work.

I'm sure there are million different ways to go about it. First we cut our paper into strips. Then taped down our vertical rhythm to hold it still while we slid on the horizontal bits. Finally we folded back the ends and taped them down. Spud decided to tape it on his IKEA square storage unit — livens it up quite a bit!
