Kids Potholder Weaving Loom Giveaway by Craft Project Ideas

As you know from my summer lovin' post from earlier this week, we are enjoying the childhood classic craft of weaving potholders with a simple square loom and stretchy fabric loops.

The kit we are using was sent to us to try out by Craft Project Ideas, one of my blog sponsors and a company that sells arts and crafts materials and kits through Walmart and shares craft tutorials and ideas on their website.

Would you like to win a potholder weaving loom for your kids? Craft Project Ideas is giving a kit away to one lucky Artful Parent reader. To enter, see the giveaway details below…. 

The kids' weaving loom kit is for ages 5 and up and includes a loom, a hook, 165 loops (enough for 4 potholders & you can always buy more), and an instruction sheet. If you need a little extra help with instructions, Craft Project Ideas has a good step-by-step photo tutorial on their site.  


Made by Me Kids Weaving LoomReaders who leave a comment to this post by Wednesday, July 3rd at 11:59pm EST will be entered to win a Made by Me! Weaving Loom from Craft Project Ideas. Winner will be chosen by random number generator and announced here on Thursday (I will also email the winner). Giveaway open to US residents who are 18 and older. The weaving loom will be shipped via FedEx, so the winner must provide a physical address rather than a PO Box.

Good luck!

Giveaway now over.

The random number generator gave me #39, so Heather Collins wins the weaving loom. Congrats, Heather! (I will e-mail you.)

    This was my absolute number one favorite toy as a child! Now my boys fight over the one they have at the Montessori preschool!

  2. says

    WOO HOO!! I made so many of these as a little girl…truth is, I still love this. Great toy for fine motor, and my 2 year old, 6 year old and 9 year old would LOVE it.

  3. says

    So fun! I know my kids would enjoy this and it would be a great activity for them to learn from. Thanks for the chance!

  4. says

    Blast from the past! I remember my potholders as if I weaved them days rather than decades ago.
    My young daughter will love weaving, maybe as much as us weaving more memories together.

  5. christine says

    My daughter’s mysteriously disappeared…we’d love to replace it! Thank you!

  6. [email protected] says

    One of my favorite crafts as a kid–and I still have some my cousins made me as wedding presents! 16 years ago!

  7. Zabrina says

    Oh I remember these from when I was younger!! Would love to introduce them to my boys!!

  9. Alicia G says

    Oh that looks like so much fun!
    Much <3 for the random number generator too. Sometimes I put my to do list in their list randomizer for the heck of it. :)

  10. Liz says

    My oldest daughter received one of these as a gift one year, and she loved it. I’m sure my younger daughter or son would love to try one out for themselves. Thanks for the contest!

  13. says

    My middle son is almost five and he adores following directions. I wonder if he’d like something like this. Hmm. This may be just what I need to get for him to try out. Thanks for posting about it. (:

  14. Chris Conn says

    Pot holders made by granddaughters are the BEST!!!!!!! Couldn’t tell you how many I have made over the years……

  15. Jenn W. says

    We bought a similar set to give as a birthday present recently — my son (4) was bummed to give it away!

  16. Kristi says

    Thanks for the opportunity! What a cool way to keep my daughters occupied on trips this summer! :)

    I’ve been working on coming up with new ideas for my 5 year old and think he would love this for some quiet time during our summer afternoons.

  21. [email protected] says

    I remember making pot holders like that when I was a kid and was just thinking about getting some weaving material. I am an after school day care provider and was looking for some new things to do with my kids.

  22. Kim says

    I had one of these as a kid and loved it. My boys are a little young for it still but it would be perfect for them to grow into using. Thanks for doing this giveaway! :)

  23. Marian says

    Loved weaving when I was a little girl. I got to make pot holders & placemats. I hope my kids can pick it up & enjoy it as much as I did.

  24. Chrissy PukkLocke says

    i had a weaving loom my grandfather made out of wood. I made bags, place mats and christmas gifts for a few years, i still remember the pride i felt give people THINGS that were useful, instead of drawings and things glued together. l was introduced to crochet and i’m still addicted to crochet. i believe having a wee loom as a kid taught me an appreciation for textiles that continues today. i would love the opportunity to share this with my 2 girls (4 1/2 and 1 1/2) thankyou

  25. Lindsay says

    This was one of my favorite things to do as a child! I would love to share it with my children :)

  27. Amanda Bales says

    I would love to have one of these for my kiddos, they love to create, and this would fulfill that need for sure. Thanks for the entry!

  28. T. Wighton says

    My daughter had the opportunity to weave on an antique loom and she fell in love with it. This would be so much fun and she would be so delighted to be able to weave again. And at home – bonus!!

  32. Megan says

    My kids and I do a lot of craft projects during the summer and this is one we haven’t done yet, but I think they would enjoy! And I would enjoy it even more if we win the free kit!

  38. says

    I loved this as a young girl!! There were several years where my relatives graciously received sets of potholders that I proudly presented to them–an assortment of colors for the various holidays and others carefully made to coordinate with their kitchen color schemes. My daughter would love this! It would be a great Mommy/Daughter project. Thank you for bringing back fond memories and inspiring new activities!

    I loved making potholders as a kid! So fun and I can’t wait to do it with my two children.

  47. Mary Elizabeth VonDras says

    I had one of those looms back in the ’70’s!!! Loved it! Though, I remember kind of dull colors for the little loop thingees –real color, bright and happy = more fun for kids!!
    This would be a great activity for kids who need work on fine motor skills, like my son. Wonder how he would take to it! If We could weave a landing pad for his Lego Batman villians!!! :)

  64. Lori Z. says

    My daughter tried doing this with my mother in law a couple years ago…they couldn’t do the ends so Grandma sewed the end together instead. I think maybe she’d be old enough to give it another try.
