The Rainbow Loom or Cra-Z-loom bracelets trend has officially launched throughout the world! With small colorful rubber bands, a loom and a thin plastic stick, kids can make various types of do-it-yourself bracelets.
Our kids made their very own Cra-Z-loom bracelets following the easy instructions provided in the kit. This occupied them for a very long time and for some, it is even a bit addictive. As we were going away for the weekend and wanted to travel light, we decided to take along our Cra-Z-loom rubber bands and a simple plastic fork to make some more bracelets while on-the-go.
Follow these steps to make your own quick and easy Cra-Z-loom bracelets:
In order to make the Cra-Z-loom bracelets with a fork, we broke the two middle tinessuffit de casser les 2 fourches du milieu de la fourchette afin de créer la base vous permettant de réaliser vos bracelets.
Step 1. Break the two middle tine of the plastic fork.
Step 2. Take the first rubber band and wrap it around the two outside tines in the form of a figure 8.
Step 3. Add two rubber bands around the tines on top of the first rubber band without twisting them (in an 0 form).
Step 4. Take the bottom rubber band and wrap it around the 2 other rubber bands around each side of the fork tine, on the left and on the right.
Step 5. Add another rubber band on top. Repeat Steps 3 & 4 until you have reached the ideal length of your bracelet.
The possibilities are infinite for making various models of bracelets. This method is relatively quick and easy for kids ages 5 and up. Our results!?
