July 4th, 2009 · 12 Comments

This week is our Blogaversary and we have things like the World Wide Web on our mind. And just recently we had this visitor who inspired us somewhat:

So in the middle of winter and glorious weather we took an afternoon off from the beach and we wove our own web, using natural goodies that we have collected and keep in our nature garden. Things like pine cones, sea shells, bark and seed pods. This is what you are aiming for:

Let’s Meet the Players:

  • a pile of sticks/garden poles
  • some strings and things
  • ribbons, pipe cleaners and wire
  • bits of bark, seed pods, sea shells

Let’s Play the Game:

Step 1: To begin with we hammered two poles into the ground where we would plant our web when we were done.

Step 2: Then we piled up our poles to make a base for our web. We tied our poles together using a most proficient knot (not!!!). Papa Bear from “the Berensteins Bear Scouts” would have been proud of our knotting!!!

Then we wrapped a string web around the poles…

Step 3: Then a whole lot of hammering and drilling went on.

Step 6: Threading and weaving and winding and our web got more and more intricate.

Step 7: We balanced our web against our upright poles and we were pretty much done – well except for a few more additions. I can see this is an ongoing project!

That’s it – Happy Threading!
