Last year, a retired friend donated her children's old toys to my classroom. Among the items was a loom - really cool, but not exactly a preschool level toy. I took the loom to my mom, thinking she'd find a use for it someday.
Katherine came home from school last week and mentioned that they were weaving in art class, using yarn and bits of cardboard for looms. So Granny dug out the cool kids' loom, strung it with warp threads, and turned Kate loose in her yarn stash. Katherine has been weaving ever since.
