Lee-Kuo saw his mum’s paper dogs and decided to design his own system for paper weaving a dog. He found pictures of a dog on the internet and created the proportions in 3D. He then began weaving using his 3D model as a guide. This is his finished paper woven dog.

We had a few magazines lying around and my wife decided to have a go at paper weaving. These are the results and I think they are really amazing. The handbag gets lots of attention and many people would like to buy one. The dogs are also really incredible, which shows that this system of weaving lends itself to almost any shape.
Lee-Kuo came home one day from school and showed us this lovely montage. We thought it was a great piece of work for the subject of flowers.
I find something so simple and easy to make like paper weaving, is great for children to get into mixing colours. I prepared all the strips of paper in many colours and cut the origami paper. My students then weaved the paper and made a frame from popsicle sticks. They look great hanging on a wall.
This is something I designed for my kindergarten children. Although the idea of using wind power is an old one, it’s great for young children. I used an upside down paper bowl for the base because you can get them from 7/11 in Taiwan. We had lots of thick paper in kindergarten so I simply used it for the rocket and launcher. It really is simple to make and the children love to blow them everywhere. Download the file from my downloads page.
