Loopy looms

The latest craze for our kids, is making Rainbow Looms.
I know, they are pretty late to jump on this trend, compared to kids in the US or Singapore and even here, but they are both so into it, and they love it! They got a few bags each in different colours as end-of-year presents yesterday.

Rainbow Looms are small rubber bands in all different colours, that the kids make bracelets with, either with their fingers or by the help of a peg board (that we haven't been able to find here, but it's the first thing I'm going to buy when we get to Europe).
There are an abundance of movies on YouTube on how to weave to make different designs, and the kids just haven't stopped. Both of them are all into it, working together to come up with new designs and colour combinations and it's great to see how they help each other when they get stuck.

They are super busy making bracelets for themselves, for each other, for their friends and even for Mummy and Daddy. Lucas made these for us yesterday when he was supposed to go to sleep. ♥

  1. Aaaawww, that is so sweet of him! Yes, the looms are a big hit and they don't seem to tire from knitting on them. I have my arms full - came to a meeting yesterday and me and several colleagues had our arms full. Pretty easy to see who's got kids, just look for loomband bracelets:D
