Kilim Weaving

We are weaving small rugs, kilims, to put into our "Asia Box". In studying the Middle East, we learned about the rugs that are traditionally made in Turkey. I cut the frames out of cardboard and tied the weaving threads to each of them. Each one of the kids picked out the two colors that they wanted to use, then I taught them how to weave the thread through the loom.

Now, the trick will be getting the rugs off of the loom and tying them. I would hate for the kids to go through all of this work just to have them fall apart!!

That looks so cool. Please post a picture of them when your kids have completed them. I would love to see them. I will cross my fingers that they don't fall apart. We have done many a project to have it all go to pieces. I DO NOT like having to start over.
