Peg Loom Weaving Set Review and Giveaway!
**********This giveaway is now closed!***********
Recently I received a Peg Loom with Wool Yarn (item #V54) from Montessori Services (also known as For Small Hands) for review. My 7-year-old daughter loves crafts, so we eagerly opened it up and started weaving!
Some of the loom features I really like are:
1) The loom is made of wood and the yarn provided is 100% wool
2) The directions are clear and easy to understand
3) The loom is easy to use
After weaving the included string on the loom to make the warp, we threaded the needle and started weaving. My daughter has done projects like this before (making potholders on plastic looms) so she had a good idea of how to do it.
It does take time to weave the yarn all the way across the loom. In about an hour, my daughter had woven yarn halfway across the loom. We did use double yarn in the needle as recommended for faster weaving.
Here are my daughter’s thoughts about the loom (as she weaves on it, see picture):
“I think that you should be careful when going over and under with the yarn because it’s easy to do it wrong. I think that kids ages 5-10 would probably really like it. It comes with lots of yarn in nice colors, and you can make many things with it.”
The instructions include suggestions for several projects, including wallhangings, purses, carpets, and pillows.
I think this craft is a great way to bring practical life activities into any home or classroom. As it says on the box:
“Boys and girls love to weave! Designed to help develop fine motor control, dexterity, concentration, and basic mathematical skills.”
Thank you to Montessori Services for letting us try this great item!
