I learned how to weave baskets at Discovery Camp!!!

I learned how to weave baskets at Discovery Camp in Greenfield Village. Honestly, it was pretty fun. There are many ways to make baskets. First, I had to put all of my wood in water to make it soft (so it wouldn't break). I had to move my fingers around a lot but it was worth it. With some help, I was able to get the hang of the little weaving pattern (making the wood go in and out and then cutting it to start a new row). The lady who helped me was very nice and encouraging. I ended up making one big basket (maybe for a picnic) and a little basket with some red, orange and yellow lines added to it. What made me even more happy was that I got to weave with my new friend! I love learning new things! :)
