My daughter has recently gotten the hang of braiding- plaiting fringe on blankets, Wiki Sticks, her hair, etc. She has also been working a little bit on her knitting.
After looking at our clothes and furniture and noticing that some were knit, some were braided, and some were woven, she asked if she could weave something. I whipped up 2 cardboard looms from old cereal boxes and we got to work. She now has a beautiful rug for her Barbies.
