Construction paper (1 red, 1 green)
Card board (cereal box works well)
Cut the construction paper in about half inch thick strips.
Cut out the card board to match the length of the strips.
Staple a green strip horizontally and then a red strip about half an inch apart.
Next staple green, then red until you run out of space. Staple on top and the bottom of the strips.
Then you can demonstrate how to use the remaining strips to weave going under and over the previously stapled strips of paper to make a pattern.
In the next blog we will turn this activity into a Christmas card! So hang on to your patterned creation!
