Weaving for Kids- a Recycled Plastic Bottle Craft

This project takes weaving for kids to a whole new level.  Not only will your kids learn some basic weaving skills but alllll of the materials used are 100% upcycled.  That’s right- a zero cost art project because all of the materials were headed to to the trash anyways!  Save a water bottle and an old t-shirt and get ready for a new kind of water bottle craft!
