I have had these white wire storage units since my single days - there are little plastic pieces that let you build cubes in basically any formation you want. I have some in Chiquita's room, a few under cupboard, but I still had some spare squares.
Since I'm always thinking about new activities for Chiquita I decided we could repurpose these easily as weaving frames! I cut some strips of fabric and tule and sat down with Chiquita. She picked which material she wanted to use and I tied it on to the frame. Then I taught her just a basic over-under weaving. The actual language that ended up working the best was "from the top, then from the bottom". We repeated the pattern until the strip ended and I tied it to the frame again. We did a number of strips that way. Then Chato needed my attention so I let Chiquita just do it however she wanted to.
I hung the finished product in her room! Free art!
