Activity: Demonstrate how to weave a piece of paper, beginning with over, on the mat. Make sure to demonstrate how to move the weaved strip close to the top of the weaving mat. Begin with a 2nd piece showing how to alternate the next row starting with under this time – move the strip up the weaving mat. Invite your child to begin the activity.
