Middleschoolers! Learn to weave on a Rigid Heddle Weaving Loom.
Provide your middle schooler with a change of pace and a break from technology. Weaving and other fiber arts have been proven to lower pulse rate and blood pressure, thereby calming and relaxing the physical body. Weaving also offers a sense of achievement as the woven fabric grows and grows on the loom. Problem-solving skills get plenty of exercise while weaving. And the action of weaving makes use of both visual and kinesthetic/tactile skills at the same time, facilitating hand-eye coordination, left-right coordination, and concentration skills.
