Here at Kids Activities Blog we have been in LOVE with band bracelets and all sorts of loom bracelets. That is why we are so excited today to have some non-bracelet rainbow loom projects! At our house, we love to create Rainbow Loom Charms band bracelets, but a kid can only wear so many. My oldest son has taken to making all sorts of charms on his loom. Charms are fun because you can use them as key chains, zipper pulls, or trade them with friends. Here are our favorite Rainbow Loom charm ideas to make.

Easy DIY Rainbow Loom Charms

We own the original Rainbow Loom, but the boys have broken two hooks! We replaced the plastic Rainbow Loom hooks with metal crochet hooks – size f or 3.75 mm. This has been working well for creating loom charms.

Here are five of our favorite loom band charms. Each charm has a link to the tutorial.
