Or even this,
Then congratulations, someone in your household is now making Loom bracelets. I say congratulations because while you are throwing packs of brightly coloured bands at your offspring it means that there are less bands in the world for me to buy.
Glittery ones, coloured ones, even glow in the dark ones, ALL of these have now been sucked up by my Hoover, been scooped out the loo and ended up in my bed, occasionally I too am made a Loom band which, if made by the 8 yr old is so bloody tight it cuts off circulation to my hand and turns my fingers blue. (I wonder, if I try to choke myself to death, will it feel like someone else is doing it?)
Don't get me wrong, I love these pesky little bands, they keep my children amused for hours. (Usually when I've tied them down with them) and I must admit, the 14yr old is getting REALLY inventive and clever with them.
But the fact is, these pesky little bands get in more places than they really should, my house is overrun with them! We have a SHOEBOX full of them, and yet my children are thirsty for MORE!
(These are just the ones I picked off the stairs)
All of a sudden these bands are everywhere, and I don't just mean in my house, I've seen parents elbowing each other out of the way in toy shops for the last pack of glittery bands (sorry about that) and my Facebook is FULL of parents showing off the bands that they have made (I'm not sorry about that)
Had your household been infected with the Loom band craze?
Can you make good ones or seen any great tutorials?
(My eldest also made a Minecraft one, I was very impressed, not so impressed by the fact she gave it to her sister who left it at school!)
Let me know how you are getting on, and does anyone else keep having to buy new hooks? I can't be the only one.
