DIY Rainbow Loom Charm Valentines with Free Printables

Easy DIY Rainbow Loom Charm Valentines with Free Printables. Easy to make and fun for kids!

My tween daughter recently started making all sorts of charms with her Rainbow Loom with the many tutorials online. Over the holidays, she made me a cute snowflake charm and I attached it to the pencil that I keep at my computer desk. My daughter makes these charms and since they stretch and loop around just about anything, she has charms attached to her backpack, her purse and her pencil case. She also makes them for friends at school.

I thought that Rainbow Loom charm valentines would be a cute idea for tweens since most are no longer buying the character valentines. There are many different types of Rainbow Loom charms and some are easy and others more complicated. If you are making them for the whole class, I suggest choosing an easier design or your tween can make them for siblings, neighbors or just for their close friends as something extra special. Some of the fun ones that I have seen are flowers, hearts, mustaches, animals. [Read more…]

Rainbow Loom Giveaway – Hot New Craft Kit for Tweens


Rainbow Loom Giveaway

 ***** Our Rainbow Loom Giveaway is over, but you can shop the Rainbow Loom store below for looms and refills. Congrats to Leah S.  #Giveaway #RainbowLoom *****


Rainbow Loom kits are one of the hottest new craft kits for tweens.  I first saw the Rainbow Loom at my local independent toy store. I walked in to browse and noticed they were holding a free class on how to create a new pattern of bracelet with the Rainbow Loom. I was intrigued! These loom kits are literally flying off the shelves. They are in such demand that they are getting weekly shipments of refill bands and they only allow each customer to purchase one of each color of refills at a time so that everyone has a chance to buy refills. I have to admit, they are pretty cool. Basically, you take brightly-colored rubber bands and your loom to weave fun accessories like bracelets, anklets, rings and more. The styles and patterns seem to be endless and the refills come in so many colors, including glow-in-the-dark.  [Read more…] Web-Exclusive Sale and Big Discounts on Sewing Machines has two great sales going on.
