We recently went to the Madrona Fiber Arts Festival and Miss Beans had the opportunity to weave on a floor loom, she has talked about it ever since. For homeschooling she gets to pick a craft or art to work/learn for the month, this month its weaving, obviously. We have started very small and made a simple cardboard loom to for her to get a sense and feel for weaving. (EXCELLENT tutorial here!). This is keeping her occupied for long stretches of time, I am finding that she is quite happy practicing this way making little rugs for fairy homes.
