Knot Tying Skills


This week we are going to be learning a variety of different knot tying skills that we can use to help us when we are in outdoor learning.


Look at the pages below and see if you can challenge yourself to completed one of these knots in a minutes.




Now have a go at making your own natural hanging mobile using the square lashing knot.

This short video gives you a lesson in how to tie the knot.


You will need:

Two sticks

5 lengths of string

Natural objects like cones, leaves, barks and twigs.


Now choose a place to hang it and enjoy watching it move in the wind.
