This easy craft idea for kids is lots of fun and doesn’t take much to set it up either. There are only a few items that you need and the woollen webs come out looking pretty good too. Double bonus!

Do you need an easy art and craft idea for kids? Or maybe you’re teaching your kids about color, texture and line? This simple DIY craft will look fantastic on display and they’re super easy for kids to make. My students love weaving different colored patterns and exploring the various textures to create their very own woollen web

This craft idea also ties in nicely with your arts learning area as it focuses on colour, texture and line and it uses a simple weaving technique.

You’re only limited by your imagination. You could have themed patterns using specific colours, such as it you’re looking at warm or cool tones; or you could let your kids create their own multi-coloured design.

Here’s how to make your own woolly webs.

Materials

  • 1 sheet of coloured thick card per student. I have used A4 size;
  • 1 cardboard frame per student (optional), approximately 2-3cm wide in any colour – A4 size. You can make these yourself by cutting the centre out of the card;
  • Woollen threads (yarn) in different colours. Have these already cut in lengths;
  • Sticky tape / masking tape;
  • Stanley / utility knife;
  • Scissors; and
  • Craft glue and paintbrush.

6. Brush craft glue over the back of the frame, position over the wooly web and press down to stick. This step is optional, but I think the frames make the webs look finished.
