We are using the book “Classical Kids An Activity Guide to Life in Ancient Greece and Rome” by Laurie Carlson as inspiration of this project.
You can find the book at
For this project you will need embroidery string or floss, cardboard or chipboard, scissors, yarn, a bowl to make a circle and a shuttle (we used a popsicle stick). Optional: compass, protractor, knitting needle.
Some supplies can be found at A Child’s Dream.
For a circle with a diameter of about 5″, the project takes about an hour to do.
The only complicated part of this project is making sure you wind the string around the notches correctly. Make sure you have an odd number.
