I read a chapter of a book at a time, (maybe a little more at times when they just need to know what happens next) so bookmarks are very handy. I decided to do something a little different to the cardboard bookmarks we normally make so we weaved some little Gryffindor scarves instead :)
Weaving on a cardboard loom is super fun and easy to do. My little girl is 6 and managed to do this pretty much on her own.
To make the loom board I used cardboard from a cereal box. I then cut notches evenly spaced along the top and the bottom edge. Then take your yarn and wind it around the notches
