Rubber Band Bracelets
I love how the gold and silver bands are packaged individually inside the main packaging. Being rubber bands they can tend to stick together and color transfer can be annoying. That simple extra step is very thoughtful and convenient. The bands are thick for their size although easy to manipulate. They feel sturdy enough to hold up to kids playing, running and jumping around. They do not snap and break when trying to create the bracelets.
I had my 9 year old niece, Lexi, come help me do this particular review. She is addicted to making rubber band bracelets and seems to be a pro with the loom. Over the last couple months it seemed like every time I seen her she was making a bracelet for someone. Her first comment when helping me open the packaging was how hard the bands felt. I asked her what she meant, and she explained that some of her bands are kind of flimsy and went on to tell me a story about making a bracelet and having rubber bands flying all over Lil' Gram's kitchen. (They call my gram, Big gram, 'cause she's older and my mom, Lil Gram, 'cause she's younger) She had me cracking up with her story.
She started out using the loom we were sent and that process looked rather easy and I was able to pick up on it rather quickly. The Rainbow Braid Bands were extremely cooperative when placing on the loom and stretched easily. They do not feel like they would, they seem very sturdy and strong, but they moved perfectly and shrunk right back down after stretching. Not having loose bands in the bracelet make it fit better. (Lexi's words)
As we sat there playing with the bands and loom, she continued talking and telling stories as most 9 year old girls do. At some point in our conversation she switched from using the loom to just using her fingers. She took the Rainbow Braid Bands and somehow was creating a chain of bands on her fingers. I asked her what she was doing, as this is how I had seen her make them at my moms. She explained that you don't even have to use a loom to make the bracelets and continued to show me how to "Finger Loom" I sat there listening and watching her work away, and tried to mimic what she was doing, while also organizing the bands. You could tell she was a pro, she just continued to talk and create. Finally about half way through making her first Rainbow Braid Bands bracelet, I realized, I had learned absolutely nothing about bracelet making, a little about the Rainbow Braid Bands and a ton about her. I was so involved in our conversation and watching her that my review process turned into a memory maker. She literally had me sorting and organizing while she created. Smart kid. lol
These Rainbow Braid Bands are great! Not only can you create amazing quality bracelets with these bands, they inspire quality time and conversations with the kiddos!
