Last week Grandma planned a special treat -- she brought us to a friend's house to learn basket weaving.
The first step is to let the 'reeds' soak in water. Then, after a few more steps you just start the weaving process.
Even Charissa got to make one, with Grandma's help!
Once you have the shape down it gets a bit easier.
Adding color is so much fun! Our teacher had so many different ones to choose from!
It was fun to see everyone's style come out in the colors.
Nathanael had a lot of fun color woven into his basket!
Alaythia's is more purple and navy.
Charissa's is pink, red, purple, and blue.
Susanna had very bright colors -- orange and Blue!
I had red, white, and blue.
Once you are done weaving, you have to finish the handle and wrap the top. That part was a little harder but still a lot of fun!
Here are just a few of the hundreds of baskets that Grandma's friend, Jean, has made.
She is so good at making baskets! It was so much fun to learn from her!
Thank you Jean!
