Looming with my girls | Mommy and Me Monday | 266th ed


We’ve been bitten by the loom bug. After just one time of reading over the directions and showing the girls how it works, they are hooked. It took me longer to figure out than it did them by a long shot!

Despite N’s distracted look (she’s made a million of them) and B playing with the pieces (this is the first time she’s been allowed to be near them)!

We’ve stuck to the basics, but the nice people that send them from Friendly Bands* also have over 90 instructional videos to help out. The SunshineLoom is the first and only circular loom created to weave rubber band projects!

We have fun deciding on patterns, or not and pulling the creations off. N actually made bracelets for all of the girls in her class (she made rockets for the boys…all on her own).

Tiny little feet make it extra fun because you have to make sure the little hands attached aren’t picking up the rubber bands! (It doesn’t take three hands to do it, either. In fact, just one works and a little hook that comes with it).

And just because, a post-bath, we are so excited to have been invited to Disney Social Media Moms Celebration this year!!

No, the kids don’t know (so, shhhhhh) and we are still trying to work out all of the details! And yet still, very excited (notice the runDisney shirt, too!)

What fun have you been up to lately?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.*

  1. I have to admit I’m totally curious about those looms. I’ve never once tried it, and it looks fun! Also, I love that wide-mouthed grin from your little one in that pic!

    1. It’s fun and stressful all at the same time….sort of like any hobby, right?!?

      Thank goodness I have some good little smilers, because my bigger ones are tougher to get!

  2. That looks interesting. We enjoy the Rainbow Loom but haven’t seen this kind! Neat. And enjoy DSMMs in May! Very fun.

    1. I’m not sure how the curve makes a difference for the basic patterns, but I’m sure the harder ones it helps!

      It’s going to be crazy and hot and fun all at the same time!

  3. We haven’t gotten into looming, although my 5 year old son is curious. And huge congrats on the Disney Social Media Moms!! That is awesome!!

    1. I think 5 is probably still a little early. My 6 year old can get frustrated sometimes. But, it is a fun idea!

      Thank you very much! We are very excited…and by we..I mean me because the girls have no clue yet!

  4. AHHH!!!! That last picture just slays me. How sweet!
    What fun have we been up to? Well, Tommy just had a bday and that was super fun. But mostly we have been busy, busy, busy.
    At the end of this week we are going on spring break. And it will be our first real big spring break vacation as a family. Todd’s mom rented a condo down in FL for a few months and we are going to go and visit her. Of course we are making stops at Disney, Universal, and Legoland so the kids are SO excited. Plus, we need some time away. Our lives have been FAR too busy lately. It is going to be a VERY long car ride though, so we’ll see how that goes. 😉

    1. The car ride will make all of the memories! I remember so many road trips growing up!!

    1. They go through spurts of making like 10 at a time and then taking a break!

  5. Congrats on DSMM!!! One of my professors showed me those loom kits last year. I guess they’re all the rage with this age range. It looks fun.

    I absolutely love that smiley picture of you & your baby! (and your older daughter is beautiful). But what a gorgeous photo that is!
