One sunny morning at the Forest, a couple of children joined in doing some creations with straws, beads, different types of string/yarn and tape.
Each child took 3 straws, chose their colours of string/yarn they wanted to use and began weaving or wrapping their straws.
One child said, " Mine is a bookmark and I'll use it in my book I'm reading."
There was one child who couldn't decide what they wanted their creation to be.
" I made a magic wand!" one child said sitting beside their friend. The other child decided that was what they wanted too! Both of them walked beside each other, swinging their wands doing some magic.
Another child decided to come see what was going on at the tarp. The child said, " I don't want to use the string/yarn but I would like to make something." Once the child decided, the child said, " Mine is a flute." as they tried blowing it to make some sounds come out.
While making these creations, the children learned wrapping, weaving, tying strings together making knots and cool designs their minds came up with. When all the creations were made, the children had the option to play with them or take them home to show their parents.
