Some dear friends of ours came to visit last summer from Michigan and brought along this fun discovery -- Rainbow Loom (aka Twistz Bandz).
It's a gadget where kids can make their own bracelets in a few steps using colorful mini rubber bands. This little deal is so infectious that if you're the first house in town with one, be forewarned -- your kids will be coming home from school swarmed with requests and color combos from friends who want a bracelet of their own. Needless to say, the kit makes an amazing gift, too.
