Apple Basket Weaving

I did this activity with second grade. They got a strip of brown paper and had to mark with a ruler the lines for the basket. After cutting their lines, they were ready to weave. When the basket was finished, they cut the corners off the bottom of the basket to make it rounded. The basket was glued to a piece of 12x18 white paper. At first I used real apples and paint, but it didn't work out so well so I eventually had the students use crayons to draw their apples. You could also use tracers or have them cut apples out of construction paper. Note: the weaving takes longer than expected!!!
