We are trying something a little different this summer with what we are calling Days of Discovery : ) I have been wanting to try weaving with the children ever since I saw a lovely article in the spring Living Crafts magazine.
Our Days of Discovery will explore all the fun ideas that I've been wanting to share with the children (including weaving). : ) I loved how in the magazine they showed children using cardboard as their loom. So here are our attempts. : )
Challee wanted to decorate her loom.
Here is one of her projects in progress. There are also signs of little sister handy work in the back ground. Emma had been helping me water flowers earlier. : ) Its funny how I didn't even notice the water until I put the pictures on the computer.
This one is Challee’s finished project. : )
I'm looking forward to trying this again. It was a lot of fun. Maybe next time I'll try using some natural materials.
