Have you heard of Loom Bands? If you have children over the age of four I'm guessing that you probably have! If not let me give you a brief introduction...
What are Loom Bands?
Loom Bands are small plastic bands in bright colours that you are soon going to start finding everywhere... Yes, everywhere, so far I've discovered them in my cereal, in the bath and inside my favourite book!
Apart from popping up all over your home they also have a purpose, which is to be weaved into colourful bracelets. This can be done either on a plastic loom or on your fingers, thanks to youtube tutorials, using a fork to weave them has become quite popular too!
Designs range from really simple bracelets to much more complex and extravagant, I've even seen Disney characters made out of them!
The craze has even taken the celebrity world by storm with the likes of David Beckham and even Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge spotted wearing the colourful Loom Bracelets.
Don't be fooled by the bright colours and idea of bracelets, loom bands are a great activity for both girls and boys!
My six year old son enjoys watching youtube tutorials and searching Pinterest then being creative with the bands, I think it's a great activity to help improve fine motor skills and encourage independence, especially for children like Ben who is Dyspraxic and has Hypermobility.
