CD Weaving

For art last week we did weaving on a cd.  The idea came from this pinterest link.  It went over pretty well.  I prepared the cd's in advance by "warping" them so it was one less step for the kids.  The important part of this step is to make sure there's an odd number of warp threads.  I made less warp threads for the younger kids and more for the older ones - not sure if that was helpful or not.  Once that's done, the weaving begins.  I thought it was super helpful in the original instructions to make "needles" for the kids out of a plastic container.  That made the weaving so much easier.  I love how they all turned out so different.  Some of them were super thick with all the yarn piling up in the middle and some of them were more spread out and flat.  Overall I thought it was a successful art project.  Here are the results:
