The No-Knit Trick: Loom Weaving To make a cardboard loom, take a piece of rectangular cardboard and fold the shorter ends back 1⁄2 inch. Cut evenly spaced 1⁄2-inch vertical slits into the folded ends, leaving 3⁄8 inch between each slit. A Touch of Fringe: Your kid can craft a woven wall hanging to rival the wildly elaborate ones that are all over Pinterest. It’s a homemade gift that’s right on trend.
Giant Connect Four! Take a shower curtain, spray paint it yellow and leave "holes" for the game pieces. Grab some plastic plates from the dollar tree and throw on Velcro on the back of the plates and where the holes are, then use Velcro to hang it from the wall each time you want to play. Kids loved it!
