Riley has been working endlessly on rainbow loom bracelets. She keeps saying "I love this. This is so cool. I love this."
It is the fad for this generation similar to what slap bracelets were to mine. Though those are back in style as well.
Riley has learned how to make a wide variety of rainbow loom bracelets by watching YouTube videos. She has gotten frustrated several times, but continues to try it again and again. I love her determination. One of my piano students (Ella) worked with her yesterday to show her how to do a Diamond Ridge pattern. Riley loved it.
She just said "I tell you. This is not easy. Not that easy!"
Here are a few of the patterns she likes:
