Making Potholder Looms

Does anyone know how to make a loom for making potholders. I have 2 grandsons and would like to teach them how to do this. I don't want to go to the expense of buying 2 looms. Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

It's pretty easy to make. Take a square of wood (the size you want the pot holder to be) and hammer in nails along the edges, evenly spaced(about 1/4 inch). And it's done. Also remember you can make the loops from old t-shirts!

Any bit of sturdy cardboard can become a loom. Just cut notches in two opposite edges! If you want to weave with yarn or string or rag strips, just wrap first the up and down strands, and weave the under over right to left on them. This way you can make all kinds of sizes and widths. I taught weaving to 9 year olds in a school this way and they LOVED it. Most of them made narrow bracelets out of cheep yarn.

This is actually easier than using those streachy loops that are very popular.
