You Too Can Make Loom Bracelets without a Loom

Loom Bands_photopinIf you haven’t heard of the loom bracelets craze at this stage, then loom bracelets are made by looping coloured rubber bands together, and securing ends together using s-clips or c-clips. They can be made on a loom, or manually on fingers, markers/pens and forks.

When my son expressed an interest, we decided to just start with the bag of bands and clips, and try make loom bracelets, without the need to purchase the loom – after all, this could be just a passing fad!
