Oriole Park Elementary second graders recently stretched a colorful chain created from tiny rubber bands down the school hallway, past classrooms and lockers.
“It’s almost as long as the hallway,” said second grader Abby Kramer.
Rubber band looming is all the rage among elementary school students who fashion colorful bracelets using many patterns with plastic looms.
Students in teacher Danielle Terpstra’s class wanted to take their crafting a step further. They spend break times adding band after band using a plastic loom to create a 50-foot chain.
“I want to make the longest chain in world,” said second grader Maya Wiltrout.
Students continue to add to their creation, working together to loop and pull the bands.
