“Weaving is relaxing, you can see your progress.”
Weaving contributes to growth and development in many ways – fine motor skills, focus and attention, eye / hand and left / right coordination, and direction following. Best of all, rhythmic motions and the tactile experience with yarn becomes meditative.

Weaving requires mathematical thinking, estimation, and measurement.
Working in teams, children measure approximately 18 feet or 6 yards of warp for each cardboard loom!
*This measurement may vary from class to class due to different sizes of cardboard looms.
Ask your child, “What is warp?
How do you estimate how much warp you need?
Why does a loom need warp?
