Loom Bands Bouncy Balls



The bracelet-making frenzy is over. Our Rainbow Loom is tucked away in a corner and doesn’t get much love these days.  We have so many bands left –bags and bags of different shades of every color. I was wondering what to do with them and found out that I could make them into bouncy balls (see instructional video here).   

Zoë and I have been making these for the past couple of days.  We’ve been making use of old bracelets that she doesn’t want anymore and wrapping bands around and around them.  We sit around companionably, chatting about this and that, while our fingers flick and wound the bands around and around until we finally get a ball.  It’s quite relaxing and rather fun, as we decide which colors will go well together and will produce really cool combinations.

What a great idea for using up those left-over bands! I think I'll pass it along to some of my primary school teacher friends as an activity for the end of the school year ;)

Thank you for joining us again this week at Photo Friday!

I wonder how many loom bands are just sitting there ending up all over the place when they could have new life as a bouncy ball!
