This week six-year-old Emma learned how to weave using a simple cardboard loom! Susan from Rainbow Creations very kindly sent us a simple cardboard loom and some plastic sewing needles after seeing my blog post about dying yarn with Kool-Aid. I set the loom up and did the first couple of rows, and Emma took it from there.
She decided to use the finished product to make a baby carrier. I love the idea of a baby-wearing Barbie!
Emma is already hard at work on her next woven project – and four-year-old Johnny and two-year-old Lily have their own homemade cardboard looms that they are weaving some very innovative patterns on…
There are so many neat things you can do with a simple cardboard loom!
