Weaving a Tapestry

When we built our castle a clipboard was left out for adding ideas of
               things that were needed to add to our castle.

                         One item listed was ‘tapestries’. 

       I thought this would be a great way to practice weaving.

On the taller easel I placed an old picture frame that my husband had
attached vertical twine to and a variety of ribbons in the easel base.

Parents showed children the technique of weaving the ribbon under and
over each string.  Some children got the hang of it and added their own

              This is how far we got after two weeks.
              It now sits in the castle by the fire place. 
              The children will continue to work on it.
