This reminds me of when I went to his school to talk about yarn and knitting and weaving. I carried a couple of kids' weaving kits that I'd bought at Michaels. And though the children did enjoy the weaving, I think they would have liked it more to just play with the little bands of colorful yarn that came with the weaving kit. I'd also carried a ton of different kinds of yarn from my stash and store. Silk, wool, cotton, acrylic, un-dyed, dyed. The biggest oohs and aahs were for the colorful variegated ones. They made me a little thank you book with pictures they drew of the session. I was so touched! I wish I could share all the pictures but here's one to give you an idea.
And here's one of the little hands weaving!
