Wonderful Weave

Have an adult cut some slits in a sheet of paper with a sharp knife. Then weave strips of different coloured paper through the slits. You could use newspaper or coloured paper like I have here. Tape, glue or staple each strip in place or leave the ends free so you can take the strips out and try another coloured pattern.
