1. God’s Eye Craft
God’s Eye craft is a fantastic weaving craft for co-ordination. In some cultures, the father of the household weaves the center eye of the God’s eye when a baby is born, and each year, until the child’s 5th birthday, another ring of color is added. It is believed to have the power to see and understand things that the human eye cannot! Follow this link to find out more about this weaving craft.
