Students weave on a cardboard loom with wool and a plastic needle. As they get close to the bottom, legs need to be made. Show students how to weave using 4 weft strings at a time for one leg and then do the same for the other each leg. They then add embellishments such as buttons, pipe cleaners, icy pole sticks, Google eyes, feathers, paper hats, feet, etc. to create their weaving people or monsters. When the glue has dried, the weaving is taken off the loom and the ends are tied together, 2 strings at a time to make the hair. Do the same for the feet but the extra string lengths can be trimmed to make short toes.
