Rainbow Looms - We love them

Have you heard about the new craze of Rainbow Looms.  I had heard about it on some of the US blogs that I read and decided to buy one for my niece birthday which is coming up.

However, Maxi came home from school a couple of weeks ago with a bracket he had made on his friends loom at golden time at school, so I decided to surprise him with the loom and we have been making ever since.

So those not in the know Rainbow looms are small looms that you thread with small colourful elastic bands to make bracelets, rings, necklaces and pretty much anything  and everything else.

You do not need to have a loom and you can use your fingers to make the simplest bracelets, which is how Maxi started.

We started with the kit below, which came with 600 latex free rubber bands, a loom, a hook  and mini loom and clips.  The instructions were simple to follow too.

We then topped up with the following kit, which comes with a loom, hook, over 3600 bands and lots of other accessories.  This means that both boys have a loom and we can use the second loom as an extension to the first to make our patterns longer and wider!

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
