What else to do on a cold and wet day but to kick back in jammies and do craft and read. We warped up our Y shaped sticks ready to weave some nature and then got stuck into some 'gods eyes'. The kids loved doing them and made one for a friend and kept one for themselves. I made one from sticks and one from skewers and popped them up with or spring stuff.
There are several theories as to the origins of these but I quite like the one I linked to that says they are made in Mexican homes to honour the gods of nature and to protect children.
