Champ is going through a weird phase, he's become obsessed with string, yarn and ribbons. What he likes to do with them is tie things up, enter our new found art form..... chair weaving! This is super easy weaving for kids, it keeps him entertained for hours and requires no set up.
This all started when Granny let Champ play with some ribbons and he created a secret hide out for Peter Pan using a chair.
Since then he asks for string or yarn on a daily basis and our dining room chairs are now permanently woven together in an intricate web of knots and twists!
As we speak two chairs and the table are tied together along with the door! Why do I encourage this play? He loves it, he gets to practise tying knots (great for fine motor skills) and he uses it as part of his imaginary play - so far he's made dens, hammocks, houses, beds the list continues.
I think this is a phase and at some point my dining room will be restored, but for now we're enjoying the creative play.
