Kwanzaa Place Mats

Weaving is such an excellent activity to try with preschoolers!  Weaving not only promotes fine motor skills, but helps children learn how to create patterns and work through problems they may encounter while weaving.

It can also be a beautiful way for children to express themselves artistically. For this activity, we created Kwanzaa place mats using black, red, and green pieces of paper.
