    You've seen those knotted friendship bracelets with words and symbols, but now make them using your favorite Rainbow Loom bands – and faster too! This loom has two rows of seven pegs. Place all your bands, then instead of looping them one at a time, use the special comb to loop all seven at once! How cool is that? While this loom will work with standard Rainbow Loom bands, this kit also includes 1000 specially-designed Alpha Loom bands in assorted colors (wider than your standard bands so the designs are really easy to see). Finished bracelets are about an inch wide if you use all seven rows to make your designs. Easy-to-follow instructions are included and design ideas are available on the Rainbow Loom website as well as Youtube(use with a parent's supervision!). – Laura

    Young princesses in training will love making their own jewelry on this easy-to-use bead loom by Ravensburger. The actual loom is large enough (13x5x2") to be easily handled on your lap or a tabletop. It is pink & purple and well constructed. The kit comes with all you need to get started: 1500 beads in pink/lavender/aqua/yellow, 4 heart beads, 4 flower beads, 156 feet of embroidery thread in pink/yellow/purple, a blunt threading needle, and detailed instructions. You can also string the beads without using the loom. Great item for making homemade gifts all year long! ~ Sara

    I have to say, I've always found crocheting easier than knitting, but with the help of this kit, it was easy to learn how to knit trendy scarves, hats, belts, purses, and more! The kit contains both a large knitting loom (7 ¼") and a smaller double-sided knitting loom (4 ¾" x 2 ½"); 90 yards of high quality, brightly colored, thick yarn; a knitting hook; thread and needles; a tassel maker; and a small assortment of buttons and beads to decorate the final products. Although the project instructions are a bit lacking in that it focuses on how to use the provided materials to make one particular project (a knit hat), the skills you will learn can easily be expanded towards other projects of your choosing.

    Making potholders is a great introduction to weaving, and a fun, relaxing and creative activity too. And the results are very useable, which we love! Both of these kits are designed to last many potholders, with sturdy metal looms and metal weaving hooks. The metal loom pegs slant outward to prevent loops from slipping off, which is especially helpful for young kids! The loops included with each kit are 100% cotton, and custom-sized to fit the loom, which is often not the case in less expensive kits. The instructions included offer instructions on starting and finishing potholders, along with design ideas and suggestions for additional projects using the basic potholder. This kit includes enough cotton loops to make two potholders.

    You've mastered the Finger Loom, but now you want to kick it up a notch? Try out the Hair Loom! As you make simple bracelets, you loop them over a tube as shown in the easy instructions. When you're done, slip a strand of hair through the tube, and slide off! You instantly have a super cute hair wrap, but without tangly floss or tricky application! If you don't have long hair, slip your hoodie strings through the tube and customize your clothes. Cut fringe into an extra-long T-shirt and make Rainbow Loom fringe. Because Rainbow Looms bands are similar to tiny hair elastics, they do a great job of staying in place. I was surprised how easily they came off once I tried to take them out – no hard pulling or tangles! I was also able to take off a few bands, use one of the clips from another kit, and easily turn the braid into a bracelet so I could continue to wear it after I tired of having it in my hair. This loom uses standard Rainbow Loom bands and includes 600 bands in assorted colors as well as 40 beads, finger loom, all the tubes and threaders for easy application and simple directions. A fun activity for sleepovers! - Laura

    By the people, for the people! This giant size guide collects over 40 of the best online tutorials from the internet how-to community Instructables and makes them available to you! There are about 30 bracelets, a handful of charms, and several other project ideas. That will keep you busy for a while! The range of these is really neat, from pretty to colorful to wacky and unique. My very favorite is the Very Hungry Caterpillar bracelet complete with charms of all the yummy things he ate!

    The dawn of the nineteenth century was wrought with hope in our rapidly changing world of communication, transportation and technology, but dark days loom as human rights and liberties are being trampled across the ocean. With the strong belief that "history is drama" Genevieve Foster invites you to join her in the exciting tale of history in the early 1800s. Part one introduces us to Richard Trevithick and Robert Fulton as they develop steam for a mode of transportation. The second part exposes us to leaders of nations, exploration and music: Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson, Touissant L' Overture, Lewis and Clark, and Beethoven. In part three we return to the progress made by Trevithick and Fulton, meet James Madison and learn of the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte. Black and white illustrations and engaging text, this book is classic Genevieve Foster. Reprinted by Beautiful Feet Books. SC. 96 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Betsy Ward, her husband, and her three children move from Connecticut to Ohio in 1803. They build a log cabin and settle in for the winter, but they are cold. Their clothes are worn and there are only so many bearskin blankets to go around. Betsy has a spinning wheel and a loom she brought with her, and she is eager to begin making wool clothing and blankets for her family. She even has a sock full of coins to buy sheep, but there are no sheep anywhere near her farm! Finally, in the spring, a herd of sheep walks by. Betsy buys the sheep but loses several to wild animals, illness, and injury. Will the family be able to shear enough wool to make warm clothes for the next winter?

    More challenging than weaving potholders, and less difficult than using other weaving tools, the PegLoom is a great way for young students and very beginners to learn how to weave. The PegLoom is a 7" x 10" sturdy wooden frame, with slanted pegs attached on both sides so the weaving won't fall off. Children draw the wool yarn through the loom with a sturdy plastic needle, building fine motor skills and enjoyment in the fact that they are creating projects of their own. The size of the loom allows such projects as wall hangings, purses, coasters, blankets and rugs for dolls, and whatever else they can dream up. The set includes the PegLoom, cotton warp string, 100% wool yarns in red, purple, green and gold, plastic needle, and illustrated instructions. Winner of an Oppenheim Best Toy award, and Teacher's Choice award. - Jess

       This is a guide to developmentally appropriate activities in many learning areas – home life/social emotional, math/manipulatives, art/music, science/sensory, language/literacy, outdoor/gross motor, and field trip suggestions. Very little prep is needed to do the activities, just gather the supplies and books listed for a complete introduction with young children or accompaniment to your math and phonics/reading for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade. Each month (September through May) incorporates a theme and a character trait into the activities, and is 3-hole punched so you can place the pages in a binder for easy access and storage. Printables are included and step-by-step instructions will make it easy for any parent to work through the activities. You should plan on 2 to 4 activities per day, but plan for what fits into your schedule – “flexibility” is the name of this game. 296 pgs, pb.


      Within the packet of pages, you will receive a monthly overview printed on card stock that can be hung up so mom can see what they will be covering during the month – a good visual and planning tool. Sections on the monthly overview list the activities to be done in each area of learning. An Introduction to the program explains the philosophy and a list of what will be covered by theme and character trait. The rest of the pages have beautiful photographs, and step-by-step instructions for implementation.

      Let me give you a sampling of one month of the program. The theme for September is “The World I Live In,” and the character trait is “wonder.” Mom’s Toolbox is the first part of every month and this is where some special resources or items will be listed. In September the “Private Eye” loupe and the book Global Art by Mary Ann Kohl are mentioned. Anything found in the “Mom’s Toolbox” section would be good to get your hands on for incorporation later in the lesson. Home Life and Social/Emotional is the first activity section for September and includes the activities of using balloons and a laundry basket to ‘take a hot air balloon ride,’ make a hot air balloon snack, practice your manners by saying please/thank you, clearing dishes after a meal, and planning an emergency exit plan for your home. You can tell already that not all activities will work for all ages, but that’s the beauty – you can adapt as you need to, pick-and-choose as you see fit. The book list for September includes Hot Air, A House is a House for Me, Can You Hear It, Frog and Toad, and He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Language and Literacy for September includes tactile letter practice, children developing their own story, and making a book. Math and Manipulatives include activities such as counting and swinging, making a spindle box (counting box), making shapes, a nature math book, and playing a water bottle marble game. Science and Sensory will have your little ones exploring outdoors with simple tools like magnifiers, binoculars, nature guides, etc., making a nature journal and a pendulum, cooking up a batch of herbal tea play dough and creating nature scenes, making an artistic pond, and make a nesting set using cans. Art and Music includes using chicken wire to use as a weaving loom with fabric scraps, making a painting on a long piece of butcher paper, sculpting clay tree faces, using coffee filters to create artistic reproductions, making salt and mirror art, and learning the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” Gross Motor and Outside has activities to develop ball skills and play games like Squish the bug, Hit the Hula Hoop, Wonder-Ball and running an obstacle course. Field Trip suggestions are touring the local news station or grocery store. At the end of each month is a supply list so you can see everything at a glance for easier preparation; most items will be things from around your home. A page for monthly memories and two planning pages are included at the end of the month, as well.

      Throughout each month, on every page, are photographs of the activities and children performing the tasks mentioned on the pages. Each month follows a similar format, so it’s pretty easy to get into a routine that fits your lifestyle. The Printables are on card stock and include photos, game instructions and game pieces, and other items that are mentioned during the monthly activities.

      Intended to give some guidance but not dictate the schedule, Year of Playing Skillfully can become a partner for you and your family as you begin the educational journey with your young learners. ~ Donna

      Learn the basics of weaving and make a neat bag in the process! The simple wooden loom is a square frame, somewhat like a potholder loom. Loop yarn through the notches to make warp threads, position the warp divider for faster weaving, load the shuttle with the polyester blend fabric yarn, and you’re ready to weave! After you’ve woven four pieces, you can follow the directions to learn how to stitch them together with the included plastic needle, and tada! You have your own handmade bag! Make more bags for friends out of yarn from a craft store, or see what else you can weave – potholders, a scarf, washcloths, and more. Loom is 10”x12.5”. Colors may vary slightly from those pictured. – Laura
