Over and Under

 

The ancient art of weaving is made kid-friendly! Try your hand at building fabric with paper, cardboard, and standing looms.

After exploring the basics of this simple over-and-under motion using paper, grab a mini cardboard loom and some yarn to create a tiny weaving of your own. Finish things off by adding to the community weaving on our standing loom!
