A Scarf for Joe

 Joe is our Ginkgo tree that we pass by daily, talk to, and follow throughout kindergarten.  He's a nice little tree.  It's been getting chilly here in Memphis and my class was a little concerned that he might be getting cold.  I mean, he's practically naked with no leaves and all.
So, we wove him a Christmas scarf!  Using our giant loom, the kids each wove for about 5 minutes each.  The loom comes with a giant wooden needle that was perfect for fabric strips.
I cut holiday fabric into 1-2 inch strips about a yard in length.  The kids did a great job weaving.  At the end, we wove in any loose ends and added a long strip at each end to tie the scarf around Joe's trunk.
It fit perfectly!  Plus, for my enjoyment, we have a little bit of yarn bombing on our campus!

Where did you get your loom? I'd like to do this project but with ribbon in our memory care community.
