"Loved reading the Story of The Dandi March by Sandhya Rao, who is one of my daughter's favorite writers! Making the spindle was such an emotional experience and we experienced history with all our senses engaged!"
Skill of the Month: Gandhi's Philosophy and An Ancient Skill
We explore the history of spinning, the role of the Charkha (Spinning Wheel) in Indian history and Gandhi's philosophy of truth (Satya) and non-violence (Ahimsa) with this box.
We also learn a really ancient skill of hand spinning wool roving into yarn. Hand spinning can almost be meditative and a great way to learn to slow down, be patient and concentrate.
