3rd grade Weaving

This is a great project for the 3rd graders.  We get a small plastic cup and cut it 3 times and try to get them evenly spaced.  Then we start weaving with our yarn and go inside the cup and then outside, Let them know its just a easy pattern.  And from there they just continue till they fill the outside of the cup with yarn.  I have done this before with bigger cups and that turned out pretty good too, but it goes a lot easier with the smaller cups.  And if you make a triangle in the middle of the cup you are doing it right.
