We were working on a project and I needed a long braided yarn piece. I tried braiding it by hand but it was too long and kept getting tied in knots. We decided to try and make it into a game. We tied each of the strands to the three big kids feet and let Brigham hold the end. Then they had to step over and under and dance the braid.
It was a great lesson in patience and an exercise in cooperation and when it was over I think they understood the concept of the braid we were making and I had the necessary supplies for my project. I don't know if we'll do it again soon, but it was definitely worth doing once.
