Get your materials before starting the project. You will need an S- or C-hook, 40 rubber bands (20 for each color you choose), and of course, your fingers.
Get a rubber band and place it on your index finger. Stretch and twist the band, then put on your middle finger.
Put two more rubber bands of different colors on top of the first band, but do not flip them over.
Take the first band and move the part that is on the index finger to the middle. Repeat the process until you use all of your rubber bands, or the bracelet is long enough to wrap around your wrist.
Move the bottom band to the middle once you use all the rubber bands. Then, move both parts of the last band left onto one of the fingers. Place the hook on and connect this part to the other side. Voila! You are done.
Rubber band bracelets are simple to make. Furthermore, they offer psychological benefits to children. Encourage your kids to make this DIY bracelet and take this opportunity to bond with them!
