Overview

Crafting for kids is back in a big way, but don't take our word for it. Just check the arms, fingers, and even feet of kids around the nation. They're all wearing super funky accessories made of multicolored rubber bands! Woven by hand, or with a small inexpensive loom, rubber band crafts are the latest craze, inspiring both boys and girls to put down their digital devices and start looming unique items to wear, share, and sell.

Loom Band It offers 60 unique rubber band projects, from bracelets and charms to cell phone sleeves and sandals. The authors also give readers an introduction to the world of loomineering (as they refers to the popular craft), basic techniques for using the loom, and instructions for a variety of patterns like fishtail, hexafish, ladder, and double braid. Kids and grownups who are new to looming, and those who would like to expand their projects, will find tons of inspiration and instruction in this book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/29/2014
Jimmy Kimmel asked for enough rubber-band bracelets to craft into a suit last February, and "loomineer" fans across the country responded. The suit was auctioned for charity, and the craft has become a full-blown habit of both pre-pubescent friendship-bracelet makers and parents looking to make all manner of rubber-band accents in the colors of their favorite teams. Roberts, a DIY blogger, and Sillars-Powell, a freelance prop and costume maker in London, have assembled 60 projects which can be done by enthusiastic kids and clumsy adults alike, creating everything from multi-loom bracelets to holiday trinkets perfect for both elementary school bauble exchange (rainbow ladder bracelets) and sorority handouts (Valentine hearts, pencil grips, hot-drink holders). Instructions are clear for most ages, and arranged from simplest (the simple chain) to more difficult (Valentine's hearts and a Halloween spider). (Sept.)

Rubber band looms—the little plastic looms used to make bracelets and other small decorative objects out of miniature rubber bands—were one of the hot toys of 2013. This collection of 60 rubber band loom projects from crafters Roberts and Sillars-Powell capitalizes on the trend, providing kid-friendly projects for bracelets, rings, charms, and other accessories. The designs vary in complexity, and the directions include the loom configuration (there are a surprising number), as well as written directions with color photographs illustrating most steps. VERDICT This book is definitely tailored toward tweens and younger teens—these aren't the sort of accessories adults or older teens would likely be drawn to—but if the rubber band loom trend continues, target readers will enjoy some new variations on their favorite activity.
