Gracie loves to craft. She’d rather do something with her hands than play a video game or watch TV. I’m very thankful for that. I don’t know where she get’s it from. I’m not a crafty person and neither was Don really. He was a handy-type man, but not crafty. She can make anything.
She was given the opportunity to try out Rainbow Braid Rubber Bands. She has been making rubber band bracelets for awhile but this set gave her the opportunity to try to branch out a little more. She started to watch youtube videos on new methods. She can now make all types of these cute little bracelets. She can even make baskets, rabbits, rings, all types of things. She’s even trying to make a princess out of them. I subbed in kindergarten one day and she made a little boy a Despicable Me Minion Bracelet. You show her how to do something once, she can figure out how to do it on her own.
I asked her to tell me what made Rainbow Braid Rubber Bands different from the rubber bands she had been buying. She told me that on the white rubber bands, the other colors didn’t bleed onto them. She told me that the Rainbow Braid Rubber Bands were stronger than the other rubber bands that she had been buying. She loved all of the colors that came in the 2400 count. It has 12 colors with 150 clips, it includes solids and neon’s.
All of the bracelets she has made have been sturdy and we haven’t heard of any breaking or needing to be fixed. I’m sure her friends would have let her known if one had broken. Gracie was so impressed with the quality of the Rainbow Braid Rubber Bands, she used HER OWN money to buy the 7200 count Rainbow Braid Rubber Bands so she could make more. It must be something special if she’s using HER OWN money to buy them.
