Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Arrange your loom so the arrow points toward you and looks like this.
Get out about 8 rubber bands
Put 1 single rubber band on your first peg
Put 2 rubber bands on the peg below it making sure the end is overlapping the previous bands
Put on another 2 bands under the previous bands
This will be your capping band, loop 1 single band around your hook 4 times, you will see 4 loops
Carefully put the capping band on the need of your butterfly's body.
For the wings you need 12 rubber bands
Put 3 rubber bands on the peg 2nd down from the top, to the peg on the top right.
Continue to lay 3 bands on each of the pegs shown.
We will now begin looming, it is very simple. :)
Make sure the arrow on your loom is still pointing towards you. Go under your capping band with your hook and grab the bottom 2 bands. Hold down your capping band and bring the two rubber bands up, and on to the peg above it.
Continue to go under all the wing rubber bands and grab the 2 bottom with your hook, pulling them both to the peg above it.
Go through under ALL the bands on the second peg down, get a band, the color you want the antenna of your butterfly to be, and pull it through all the bands. Hold on to the band. There should obviously be 2 ends of the band, grab 1 and pull it through the other end( pull it through itself)
Your butterfly is almost done, it should look like the image. the last rubber band on the top peg is the charm loop. Take one of the ends and loop it through the other end ( pull it through itself) like the previous step.
Carefully take your butterfly of your loom. Straighten out your butterfly and get out scissors and 3 more bands, the color of the butterfly's body.
Using your rubber bands we will make the head and stripes. Twist your first rubber band around your 2 loops on the top of the butterfly until it is very tight, that is the head.
Take your next rubber band and twist it around the body , in between the top and bottom set of wings and twist it until it is tight.
Carefully twist your last band on the bottom tip of the butterfly, then go to the top of your butterfly and cut the left loop in half to become your 2 antenna.
That is your butterfly! :) thanks for viewing!
