Weaving

We all have our own life to pursue, 
Our own kind of dream to be weaving,
And we all have the power to make wishes come true,
As long as we keep believing.
~ Louisa May Alcott ~
 
When the interest from finger knitting continued, Miss Wilkins thought about introducing another yarn activity to the children. She created small cardboard looms for the children and began to introduce the idea of weaving to them.
Some friends got the knack right away and they were able to help other friends.
Under, Over, Under, Over
Does that sound familiar?
Just like finger knitting, the actions of weaving are a pattern!
 
 
We wondered if the children would make patterns in the colours as they weaved their yarn.
 
Pulling the yarn tight, made the weaving squeeze together.
The bottom strings needed to be tied so the weaving strings wouldn't fall out.
Some of the weaving was very colourful.
 
The nicest part of the weaving activity was getting the chance to do it again and again!
