How To Basket Weave With Construction Paper (a kid-friendly tutorial)

Hey, ya'll! Well, it's almost time for Thanksgiving break, which means it's almost time for Colonial Day in 4th grade at my school. Which means I will teach 6 groups of students how to basket weave with construction paper.

Now this is a great activity, but I do not do well with having to repeat the same activity and instructions 6+ times in one day - who does?? So I created a tutorial video to show the students as we work on their mats. I think there will be a lot fewer errors, and I will not be so exhausted on the last day before Thanksgiving break - win-win!

All you need is a 12 in. by 18 in. pack of construction paper. One color will be the base for the mat and the other colors with need to be cut in 1 in. by 12 in. strips. It's all in the video, but if you need a quick craftivity for Thanksgiving Day or teaching patterns, just set up the construction paper with scissors and glue, play this video, and you and your kiddos are set!

Happy Thanksgiving!
