Second Grade Arts & crafts Activities: Ojo de Dios

What You Need:

  • 2 lollipop sticks
  • At least two different yarn colors
  • Scissors
  • Glue

What You Do:

  1. Glue two wooden sticks together to form a plus sign.
  2. Glue the end of the yarn where the two sticks were glued.
  3. To start weaving, wrap the yarn once around one of the sticks. Moving in a clockwise direction, continue to wrap the yarn once around each of the sticks. Make sure to pull the yarn slightly towards the centre so there are no gaps.
  4. Add a different colour of yarn by cutting the previous strand and tying in the new one.
  5. Continue working outward until you reach the ends of the sticks.
  6. Tie off the yarn on one of the sticks to finish. If you like, leave a little extra yarn after the knot and use it to hang the Ojo de Dios up!

Did You Know?

Traditionally, the eye or centre is created by the father at the time of birth. After each birthday a new colour is added. When the child arrives at the age of five, the eye of God is complete.
