7 Fun Rainbow Loom Charms for Kids to Make

My tween has brought her obsession with her Rainbow Loom to a new level. She finishes her homework as soon as possible so that she can look up another Rainbow Loom tutorial video and try making a new design. Her Rainbow Loom Organizer goes everywhere!

There are a plethora of video tutorials out there, some better than others. Her favorite ones usually come from Made by Mommy or The Parenting Channel.

Honestly, I had no idea how versatile this one little plastic loom was. Lately, she is hooked (no pun intended) on making charms with her loom.

7 Rainbow Loom charms for kids to make

Here are 7 fun Rainbow Loom Charm ideas for kids to make. I’ve consulted my Rainbow Loom weaving expert (my daughter) for each of them, and together we have rated them and broken them down into how many bands are needed for each.

I have found that they are almost like recipes. She likes to know ahead of time how many bands it will take ahead of time before attempting one.

I’ll start with the easiest, then intermediate, and finish with the advanced level charms. All of them require colored bands, a weaving loom, and a crochet hook. The only one that is different is the mini cross charm which only requires the bands and a crochet hook.

You can make them in so many different color combos. They look great hanging from a bracelet, or stick a pencil in the middle for a fun pencil topper charm.
