Do you sometimes struggle to keep your older children entertained while your toddlers and younger children demand your attention? Would you like to engage them in a fun (and independent), quiet activity while you get the little ones to sleep? Loom bands are all the rage at the moment, and they are a fantastic activity for school aged children. There are limitless possibilities of what to make, and it's easy once you know how.
