I did this in first grade and have always wanted to try it again. I thought maybe I had been remembering wrong all these years. We have a project for this week. straw weaving diy (great project for kids)
DIY straw weaving loom: Weave the yarn over and under the straws. Keep the weaving as tight as possible. As the straws become wrapped in yarn, slide the straws down to re-expose them. Continue weaving until your piece reaches the desired length.
