A master loomer according to his gym teacher. And I couldn't agree more. But the proof is in the pudding so here are just a few of his creations (thanks to many, many YouTube videos)...
I was going to get all fancy and add the words to the picture but I didn't. So starting at the top left is a turtle key chain (made for Joe's birthday), next is a penguin, then an American flag (for the Olympics of course), continuing clockwise are three ice cream sundaes, next is some sort of creature and a spider, then Thor (with his hammer), next an orange seahorse and last (and certainly least) a bow. This is just a sampling. The kid is a wizard with his loom kit. It is crazy! His classmates are constantly putting in orders for rainbow loom creations for Isaiah to make. And most of the time he is more that willing to learn to make whatever they want:)
And I realize that declaring this the YEAR of the looms is ridiculously optimistic. This was THE gift Isaiah really, really wanted for Christmas (and received obviously). And so far he is quite enthralled with it. But likely this fad will not truly last all year long. By next Christmas this whole looming craze will probably be long over and the kit forgotten and lost. But until then I am going to enjoy the rainbow loom masterpieces this kid creates (and the hours of peace and quiet it brings to our home)!
