Fun Loom Bracelets

We are "hooked".  lol  There are officially tiny elastic bands all over my house but all in good fun.  We have two different looms; one green one from Joann Fabrics and Crafts and one clear one from Ocean State Job Lot.  We have also tried looming with the prongs of a fork and also pencils.  I heard too that chopsticks work well.  We have every color band you can think of and I think Santa might have some for us too. 

This fishtail one below I made myself.  (The pattern reminds me of chevron)  Lil D showed me how to make it without a loom, just with my fingers.  It was a little tricky and hurt a few times when the elastic struck my skin, but I love how it came out.  I think it is a great craft for boys and girls and great use of manual dexterity and fine motor skills.

I am always so proud of both of my boys for trying new things and being creative!
