However, Maxi came home from school a couple of weeks ago with a bracket he had made on his friends loom at golden time at school, so I decided to surprise him with the loom and we have been making ever since.
So those not in the know Rainbow looms are small looms that you thread with small colourful elastic bands to make bracelets, rings, necklaces and pretty much anything and everything else.
You do not need to have a loom and you can use your fingers to make the simplest bracelets, which is how Maxi started.
We started with the kit below, which came with 600 latex free rubber bands, a loom, a hook and mini loom and clips. The instructions were simple to follow too.
We then topped up with the following kit, which comes with a loom, hook, over 3600 bands and lots of other accessories. This means that both boys have a loom and we can use the second loom as an extension to the first to make our patterns longer and wider!
