Pumpkin Weaving Mats
Weaving is fun!
The pumpkin weaving mats were wonderful. The colors were bright with a good assortment of designs. They were easy to assemble and the grandkids love being able to make their own design. This would be a great craft to do for a group. The pumpkins were sturdy and will hold up to smaller kids trying to weave the strips in and out of the slits.

Great product, however........
Purchased for elementary class halloween parties. Great product, however, too hard for a 5-6 yr olds to do on their own in a limited amount of time and a little difficult for 7-8 yr olds. A handful of 2nd graders complained it was too hard. It was great for building fine motor skills which those age of kids need.
I thought it was a cute activity. It would take 2nd graders about 10-12mins to complete it correctly (even they struggled with the alternating over and under). But seriously, you can't beat that price.
I also thought these would make cute place settings for the table at Thanksgiving. And a fun way for your kids/grandkids to help with setting the table.

I was looking for a project that was inexpensive for my students and a little different. This project definitely met these two criteria.
