We decided to use chicken wire as the base in our nature weavings instead of the forked sticks that we usually use. You can see the forked stick weavings here.

The children explored and collected bits of nature for their weavings.

The pieces of chicken wire were about twelve by seventeen inches. The children could bend them into any shape they wanted and fill and weave with nature. There are plenty of empty spaces to add any nature they might find in the future.

 Beautiful nature art! They can be free standing on a table or shelf or hung on a wall. 

 happy day! happy weaving!

Beautiful ideas. When my little one is older we'll definitely do this. In the meantime, just collecting its and pieces on our walks connects him to the beautiful things in nature. xo m.
