Introduction: How to Build a Rainbow Loom Using K'NEX
My little sister loves her Rainbow Loom, and making bracelets and stuff on her loom. She has a box full of colored bands. I looked at her loom and it looks pretty simple so I decided to build my own loom out of K'NEX pieces. I tried making a loom out of LEGO but I didn't have enough pieces to make it work. I think K'NEX pieces work much better because the pegs have a little notch on them that holds the bands really well.
If you have KNEX pieces, you can use them to make this easy to build rubber band bracelet loom. In my video, I'll show you how to make your own loom step by step using only K'NEX pieces. You just need four different types of K'NEX pieces - that's it. If you want to make longer bracelets, you can always add more K'NEX pieces to make your loom longer. It's really simple and it works! I tested it with my sister and made a single band bracelet on our looms. My K'NEX loom works just as well as the real Rainbow Loom.
There are two videos in this Instructable: a step by step tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGqij014N_s and a demo at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bWaF_zehLs on how the K'NEX Rainbow Loom works.
Hope you guys like. Let me know if you make one!
