With the second session, we made I-cords. Some became flowers, and some became Christmas trees. This group had quite a few boys, and their I-cords got tied into loops that they wore as necklaces. One girl, who had been needle knitting since she was four and wanted to learn to make socks, wanted to make a hat from her I-cord, and she completed about half the I-cord needed to coil around someone's head for a decent sized hat. The prospect of stitching all that I-cord together didn't phase her at all. I bet it will be a great hat.
I really am impressed with how easily children can learn to use the looms. Their skinny little fingers fit between the pegs so easily; I'm sure that helps them wrap the yarn around the pegs. They seem to have less problems switching between clockwise and counterclockwise wrapping as well. And they're very creative. I always learn something from them.
