Crafts: How to use a Rainbow Loom

by superexhausted on August 1, 2013

Crafts Rainbow loom is the latest quick easy kids craft. How to use a rainbow loom, we are going to tell you how and recommend Rainbow Loom Patterns?   Rainbow Looms are the latest trend for kids this summer you use rubber bands, loom, and crochet hooks to make jewelry.   It is a great craft for your kids to make. The kids inner loop small little colorful rubber bands to make crocheted patterns.  The kids are trading the rainbow loom bracelets, think the new type of friendship bands.   Disclosure:this post contains Rainbow Loom Affiliate links rainbow loom My daughter is loving playing with a rainbow loom it made for hours of fun.  All summer I have watched the girls at the pool use the Rainbow loom.  The child over laps the the small rainbow loom bands in a criss cross pattern, the length of the loom. Then pull the lower rubber band  with the crochet hook, through the upper rubber band causing an interlocking pattern, and use small little c hook to close the bracelets.

Rainbow loom So on YouTube you can find some great videos of how to make all different Rainbow Looms Bracelets.  You will be amazed with the little girls that do these videos.

My favorite channel is Twistz bands .. which is now owned by Rainbow looms

My kids kids really loved the Glow in the dark Rainbow Loom Bands.  My daughter keeps on going in the closet to see if the bands glow.  My son has also enjoy making them.  The rainbow loom makes and excellent gift recommend ages is 8+.  I can also recommend visiting AC Moore for a case for the bands the case cost me $1.99, great way to organize your bands.  AC Moore also sells the bands, but they do not carry the Rainbow Loom,  yet.   You can order them through My Amazon link below for Rainbow Looms  and I have also found them at at Hallmark Stores.

I remember making potholders that were really the size of drink coasters with a loom. It came with stretchy fabric loops. This set looks like more fun, because you can wear the bracelets.

Thanks to Sarah of Philly Burbs Mom, I just bought one for Lizzie this week! I have to share her your post since we struggled a little bit with getting started. The Rainbow Loom reminds me so much of the friendship bracelets we used to make. I can’t wait for Liz to be old enough to make those.

What size crochet hook is good? was there an answer for this?

I use the Aero size 4.00 mm crochet hook and it fits inside the opening so you can grab the rubber band. I hope this helps you!
