Wish you could read or snooze suspended in air? Create a relaxing scene featuring a colorful hammock. Weave brilliant colors with Crayola® Rainbow Twistables™.
Ah, relaxing hot summer afternoons spent swinging in the hammock under the trees! What a great way to pass the time! Many people sleep, play, and store their belongings in woven hammocks. Why do you think hammocks are so popular in hot climates?
Hand-woven hammocks are common in Central and South America. Bark and other plant materials were used to make hammocks before cotton and nylon fibers become popular. Weavers create vibrant patterns by switching colors and weaving in different hues of fibers.
Imagine it’s a hot day and you’re ready to relax in a colorful hammock. On white paper, draw the long strands of the hammock with Crayola Rainbow Twistables. Make it look like it is hanging between two trees or beams in a dwelling. Add colorful woven patterns to show what the beautiful rainbow colors in your Twistables can do!
Draw your hammock’s setting in the background. Maybe you’re at the beach or in a home high in the Andes.
To add an optional humorous element to your hammock, draw two hands on a recycled file folder. Cut them out with Crayola Scissors. Ask an adult to make a small slit along the hammock’s edge. Stick the hands through the slit, so that the hands look like they are reaching out of the hammock. Secure on the back with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Let's make something!
