It could be that I am the Very Last Person on our planet who had not done this with their children.
But, just in case...
Here was Today's Project.
First Maddie and I built a loom.
We did this by taking the stuff out of a wood picture frame,
and then marking dots on the frame every half inch on each end (the shorter ends).
We used a 9x13, because that's what we had.
We tapped our nails into our frame.
I wound yarn around a bit of cardboard that I cut from the backing of the frame.
Then I tied on the base strands.
After tying our weaving yarn off at the base,
we began our weaving.
This thick and luscious yarn was a great choice, as it didn't take forever to fill up a satisfactory size of cloth.
I tied off the ends of the yarn onto the frame strands,
and then took the first couple of strands off of the nails, and tied them.
I tied every two thereafter.
Very soon, it was done.
Interconnected and all.
