Laura's older students make a tag board frames (she always has students who
want to help her whenever they can). They took pieces of card stock
them in half, and then folded them in half again - then cut a frame out of the
center. Next they opened them up, and stapled five pipe cleaners so they were
sandwiched between the layers (Note from Judy: you might want to tack
the pipe cleaners in place with some masking tape first).
They used two staples on each end of the pipe cleaner to make sure that the
pipe cleaners did not wiggle themselves loose. Frame is folded over
and glued together (or stapled).
As long as you tell the students not to tug too much, these "looms" are
quite durable. Once the weaving is complete, student decorate the frames.
