This morning, my youngest receives an invitation to loom. Yes, the boys and girls gather to loom.
They bring their Rainbow Looms and their tackle boxes of little rubber bands, and they weave all sorts of designs. They make bracelets, necklaces, rings, and anklets. They weave the fishtail, the triple single, the hexafish, the rose, the tulip, the starburst, the zipper, the waterfall, the bridge, and more.
It’s a little crazy. I love it because nobody asks to watch television or play video games. They do ask to watch instructional youtube videos.
I love the Rainbow Loom for how it gathers boys and girls together for hours to weave. It reminds me of something ancient and something communal. It’s a kind of pleasure with no negative consequences.
So let’s loom.
