In the Tuesday craft sessions at school we have started our miniature proddy rugs, and the children in Year 4 are all doing beautiful, creative work! We listened to a CD of wartime favourites and pretended we were sitting around the wireless as we worked on our rugs. More photos to follow, but this is just the example I used when demonstrating the technique.
This is the second half of a seven-week project on Recycling, Re-using and Recreating. In the first few weeks i showed the children how to use plastic bags to make plarn and they did lots of beautiful weaving on peg looms and board looms. Great fun, but also lots of history, environmental issues and new vocabulary, as well as craft and design skills!
