This week is the one-year anniversary of the At Home part, and what higher option to have fun than with a puzzle containing a hidden image? Solve the clues and reveal the twist, with a mini shout-out to the part’s basket-weaving activity from August.
Write the solutions to the 16 clues within the clean areas on every strip. (We’ve crammed in some letters to assist.) Then minimize and kind the strips into one of many 4 classes, based mostly in your solutions. Can you discover what connects them? Words beginning with B? Animals you’d discover on a farm? We’ve given you a clue for every class.
Once you’ve sorted your strips into classes, the A and B teams turn out to be the vertical “warp” to your weaving; the C and D teams are woven by them horizontally. They ought to be ordered alphabetically inside their classes. Follow the diagram to weave the strips in an under-and-over sample, with the lettered squares going beneath the vertical strips. The weaving will reveal the hidden image.
Place the A and B teams vertically utilizing alphabetical order inside every group, ranging from the left and alternating teams.
Start with the primary strip alphabetically from the C group and weave it in, ensuring the lettered squares go beneath the A strips. Slide the strip to the underside.
Repeat with the primary alphabetical strip from the D group, ensuring it goes beneath the B strips. Keep weaving, alternating strips from the C and D teams till you may have used all of your strips.
Congratulations! You’ve revealed the picture! Now fold and tape the additional tabs to sq. the edges and save your paintings.
