Rubber Band Madness

I am always trying to come up with new, engaging ways to help my little ones develop their hand muscles, (you know the ones needed for writing).  I saw these cool weaving looms in a craft store and thought I could use them for something.  So we took them out this morning with a box of rubber bands.  I showed them how to loop them on the loom and they took it from there.  There are so many thing you could do with this..... make shapes, letters, create patterns, or like my two, make a mad mess!  We stayed busy for quite awhile and it was fun to make faces through them too!

What great looms, there is so much you can do with them, the bands look like they were a fun way to start.
