Event Description: 

  A loom is a very old device used to weave fibers into cloth.  We will take our own spin off of them and create our own “Nature Looms”. First, we will collect materials from the forest, then we will create own own ‘loom’ made from sticks and yarn.  Then, we will decorate them with other collected materials like bark and flowers and ferns!  Afterwards, we’ll enjoy the fruits of our labor and relax with some Solar Oven S’mores!
