Project Potholder

klutz-potholder.jpgThis past weekend I took a walk down craft memory lane when my mother-in-law brought a Klutz potholder making kit for Laurel. To be perfectly frank, it’s not the most chic craft, but boy does Laurel love it. It’s a fantastic project that enables kids to experiment with colors, patterns, and the dexterity needed to weave the cotton loops onto the loom (it was fun to see Laurel figure out her own way to weave without the plastic tool). I actually need to buy extra loops ASAP because Laurel is burning through this kit (she already has gifted three potholders to me) and we haven’t even gotten to the woven chicken project yet.
