Silly Bands or Silly Bandz have taken over as the #1 most traded item in elementary schools. If your child has less than 200, you need more. Not joking!
The name “Silly” comes from the fact that they are made of Silicone.
Particularly hot are the tie-dye Silly Bands and glow in the dark Silly Bands. Look for the rare scented and glitter also. Besides the original bracelets, there are now rings and necklaces.
My 10 year old daughter used her silly band bracelets as forms for homemade window clings.
What you need: fabric paint from the craft store, saran wrap, silly band bracelet.
Place a silly bands on saran wrap. Fill in the shape with several colors of fabric paint. Animal and word shapes work well. Let dry for a few hours. Stick on your windows.
