Craft Spotlight: Wild Weaving Mats


Weave wonderful animal mats using pre-cut printed strips. Create patterns while developing fine motor skills! 

The animal mats are made extra-large so you can hang the finished decorations up on a jungle-themed wall mural. They are pre-cut with slots to encourage weaving beginners to make interesting designs and learn concepts of going over and under.


These animals are ready to be decorated! Get the whole class in on the fun. Use craft feathers to glue to the birds or use metallic paint to add details to animals like the crocodile, fish or frog!

View more ideas at the PDF guide here. Watch the YouTube video below to see exactly how the mats are done.
