recycled t-shirt basket

This week we made baskets out of old T-shirts cut into strips woven around a cardboard frame. I used cereal and cookie boxes for the frames. which made them a little flimsy. Some of the children complained that the cardboard bent too easily. Next time I will use something firmer.

We ended up with a little extra time. So I pulled out a bag of biodegradable packing peanuts and a clean sponge. I asked them to make animals to put in the baskets. They had a competition on who could make the longest snake instead.
