Recently, we welcomed the Rainbow Loom into our home. My daughter used her allowance money to purchase the craft-craze must-have. As a mom, I love it for two reasons: 1) I grew up making bracelets, jewelry and fun accessories, and 2) I love to see my daughter being creative and not spending her free time using electronics.
J. makes bracelets morning, noon and night. This week, she maxed out her arm space, meaning she has so many bracelets that she can't fit them all onto her two sweet arms. The result: piles of bracelets, tangled elastics and a few unraveled creations. After her hard work designing and spending time on the loom, she doesn't want to see her bracelets fall apart.
I tried jewelry boxes and shoe boxes, but nothing worked well. And then I had a light-bulb mommy moment. After breakfast one morning this week, as I was tidying up after making lunches, I thought, "Why not create a Rainbow Loom bracelet holder by repurposing/recycling and using craft supplies we already have on hand?" After school, J. and I made the first of several Rainbow Loom bracelet holders.
And here is an easy how-to that will help you make your own bracelet holder in less than 10 minutes. I’m so excited to share this very easy and fun craft as a SheKnows Expert today.
J. and I had the best time doing this mom-and-daughter craft. We are both happy that she has a cute and colorful storage system that keeps her collection (and her bureau) neat and tidy.
Save those empty paper towel rolls, moms!
