Traditional crafts are often fun and enriching for children and adults alike! 's Handwork curriculum is a favorite among students. According to Emerson Waldorf School "handwork brings balance between intellectual and movement activities, allowing students to experience the struggle, joy, and care required in the creative process. The rhythmic repetition of knitting and crocheting strengthens a child's concentration and hand-eye coordination."
A Beginner Weaving Tutorial This tutorial is a perfect first loom building and weaving experience for young children, typically around age 6, who are ready to be introduced to handwork or for an older child/adult who is new to weaving.

This way, the curriculum is extended off the page or beyond spoken word into a world of dazzling, larger than life images for children to experience.
