Weaving is an ancient art and one that is uniquely satisfying for kids and adults. Your guests can weave simple placemats to get started, but don't stop there. With some adult supervision, the older kids can make paper baskets to store their party favors in. Try some of the other weaving projects on our list, too. Once they realize how fun and productive weaving can be, children often move on to weaving potholders and even rugs. This is an interest that can last a lifetime.
