This Number Weave activity took me less than 5 minutes to create. Seriously! May look like it took me longer, but I did this at 6 am while my coffee brewed.
I recently did the Yarn Threading activity with my daughter and she absolutely loved and enjoyed that craft idea. In fact, she still loves to come back to it and put her “finishing touches” to it. By saying finishing touches, I mean threading the yarn needle in every direction and in every way possible, creating pretty much a big mess. But the thing is, she found the threading part to be most interesting. Sticking a not-so-sharp (but still a needle) through something is apparently fascinating for kids…
I DID create something specially for him this time! Something where he can weave or “thread”, count and enjoy an array of pretty colors. Perhaps learn them too!

Cut 10 (1″x 6″) strips of colored cardstock. Using the permanent marker, number each strip of paper 1 through 10. Now using the hot glue gun, glue the ends of each strip of paper together to create a circle, then glue on to the cardboard. Make a hole at the bottom of the cardboard (I used my scissors) and secure the shoe lace. If your shoe lace isn’t long enough you can tie two together to create a long one or use a thin rope instead.
