Two Simple Weaving Projects for Kids

One day, DD announced, “I want to learn to weave.” I realized that I was a terrible mother… my kids have never even learned the basics of paper weaving!  It was time to bring out the construction paper and teach that all-important skill… repeating the over-under-over-under pattern!

Weaving1Then I used hard pieces of cardboard and made simple little yarn looms for them. Even my youngest quickly got the hang of it!

Then looking at Pinterest… I can see tons of new projects in our future!

DD got a LapLoom from Auntie C for her birthday and really loves it! 🙂 She even brought it on a trip with us! This is the LapLoom that we got.  There is also an upright version from Melissa & Doug. (affiliate links)
