Various colored yarns in different textures (thin and chunky), cardboard, pencil, scissors, tape, assorted colorful and wooden beads.



  1. Find different circular objects in your classroom or at home and trace them out on cardboard. Cut out the circles to make a wheel
  2. Draw spokes on your wheel (like a bicycle) with a pencil and add a cut notch at the end of each spoke (you don’t have to be exact).
  3. Tape a piece of yarn to the back of your circle and run it across the circle to the nearest cut.
  4. Repeat until you have strings that follow each pencil lines.
  5. Tape your ending yarn to the back.
  6. Take a new piece of yarn, and tie it through the center.
  7. Go around the middle of the circle over and under. As you add more yarn, the circle will get wider and wider.
  8. Add beads along the way. Add new color yarn by simply tying it to the one on the loom.
  9. When you’re done, tape the yarn to the back of your circle
