Have you seen those rubber band bracelets that all the kids on the playground have been wearing? Rubber Band Bracelets are a HUGE trend right now. They are also a fun craft kids can create using a loom kit like the Wonder Loom which is now available at Walmart.
The Wonder Loom rubber band bracelet craft kit comes with everything one needs to make several different bracelets. The kit comes with the Wonder Loom, pick tool, 600 latex-free rubber bands, 24 “c” clips, and instruction guide. The instruction guide gives great tips and help on how to make your first bracelet.

I was surprised that my boys got excited to use the Wonder Loom. As a part of the Walmart Moms, I was sent the Wonder Loom for my boys and I to try for ourselves. There is a slight learning curve when you first attempt to make a bracelet. But like with most things eventually something just “clicks” and before you know it you’ve already weaved several different rubber band bracelets. I’ve seen many different tutorials online to make rubber band bracelets from easy to the more complex. Six hundred rubber bands later and you’ll need a refill pack or two of bands to keep the looming fun going. Walmart also sells refill packs of bands in a variety of different colors as well. I’m sure my boys will want to pick up their favorite colors before too long.
The Wonder Loom is available at Walmart for just $12.88!!! An additional project book is also available for just $5 that instructs on how to make different patterned bracelets with the Wonder Loom. Both the Wonder Loom and idea book would make a great under $20 gift for both girls and boys.
Do you already have a rubber band bracelet fanatic in your house? Here is a helpful tip: to contain the bands and keep them organized, a bead storage case would also make a great additional gift. A no-spill organizer case has separated compartments so one can easily separate out the colored rubber bands to make looming a particular pattern much easier. A craft organizer case will also help with clean up and storage as everything can be contained neatly in a case.
