Those crazy kids! With their rainbow looms and bands!
Despite parents’ eye rolls (and bank rolls), we are loving the creations around here. With the rainbow loom, my daughter is:
- creative. She made a coin purse with 2,000 bands!
- resourceful. She learns new techniques from how-to YouTube videos.
- social. She gets together with her friends, with “loom suitcase” in hand, to loom and laugh.
- productive. She makes me all the rings and bracelets I could ever imagine. #childlabor
When I was a child, we had looms. And we wove stupid pot holders that were made out of polyester bands and were so tiny, that when used to hold an actual hot pot, you’d burned the crap out of your hand.
Looms these days are so much more useful. I mean, rings! Bracelets for all of us! Charms for backpacks! Coin purses! A football keychain! A guy with a super large penis!
