I'm not sure if this is just a Minnesota thing right now, but my girls have gone completely crazy over the Rainbow Loom.
We picked it up at Micheal's just last week and they still haven't come up for air yet. Just a hurried blur of bracelet making - - and trips to the store for more rubber bands.
Apparently, it's Big Time Stuff in Elementary and Middle school's around here.
The loom makes simple bracelets out of tiny rubber bands.
I'm sport'n a red and white version my third grader made for me.
Boy! Do I feel hip!
But then you can get super crazy and make the ones like my eighth grader is doing which she learned how to do on YouTube. Sort of cool right?
The more the better - - I'm told.
Gives me flashbacks to Middle School and friendship bracelet making.
Back when we would proudly wear our current projects safety-pinned to our rolled up Guess jeans as we walked down the halls so everyone would know we were cool.
Did you do that too?
Hmmm, maybe it was a Wisconsin thing.
Any Whoo, I was just wondering if any of your kiddos were caught up in this frenzied rubber band bracelet making too!
