Wonderful weaving looms

Weaving is a simple, fun activity kids can do with scraps of wool/yarn and their own homemade looms.  Looms can be made from:

  • cardboard
  • paper plates, cups and straws
  • wooden craft sticks and embroidery hoops
  • recycled CDs
  • branches, sticks and twigs
  • hula hoops

Some of the things kids can make with weaving include:

  • bookmarks
  • accessories for dolls and stuffed toys
  • wall hangings
  • scarves, necklaces and bracelets
  • decorative cups and coasters
  • nature art

Just like finger knitting, weaving is calming and relaxing, helps with concentration, and strengthens fine motor skills.
