Last year when the boys were in second grade they studied Native Americans. Oliver became somewhat obsessed, and particularly liked the idea of making everything by hand. Weaving was his favorite part of the curriculum and as a result I signed the boys up for a week of weaving at the Textile Arts Center over the summer. It was such a hit that they have continued taking classes after school this fall. I am amazed at what beautiful things they have made...the two above are my favorites (left by Oliver, right by Owen).
