Product Review: The Friendly Loom is a great way to teach social cooperation and artistic collaboration in the classroom. It’s also a fantastic extension activity for students that finish early. The loom is well constructed and can stand up to daily classroom use. It’s large but, can easily be tucked behind a cabinet, in a storage room or placed on a counter. I’ve had up to six students at one time weaving on it.
My colleague, Julie, had the brilliant idea of installing small metal hooks on either side of the frame so that students could braid fabric or yarn to use in a weaving. The extra hooks also allow two additional students to work with the loom. All of my students are excited about weaving on it. I love this product in my classroom!
