Loom Magic Xtreme! by John McCann, Becky Thomas, and Monica Sweeney

Loom Magic Xtreme by John McCann, Becky Thomas, and Monica Sweeney is excellent! There is nothing better than more ideas to create on the loom. No matter if it's a regular no-name rubber band loom brands or the regular Rainbow Loom, you can create some wonderful items to show off! I honestly love the cute ideas found inside and all the types of colors you can use to make your own personal item in the colors you admire. 

For example, I was really interested in this book once I saw the cover! It's got so many cute things including those flowers you see on the front. So you can certainly think pass jewelry with the loom and start thinking actually giftable and creative decor for the home or to play with! Of course, it's written for a child to easily put these wonderful projects and creations together, but for adults, it can still be a fun way to enjoy time with their kids and actually use in some creative DIY art as well!

Finally, for the book and it's cover I really love it! You have everything from all the steps to photos inside to help you out. Each project is full of color and easy to follow. I think the flowers are far my favorite and I really want to start on making those first and move on to the glow in the dark alien and stars!

Woodcraft and Indian Lore by Ernest Thompson Seton

The book, Woodcraft and Indian Lore by Ernest Thompson Seton is a huge book, but full of helpful information for those who might camp or want to learn a thing or two while out in the woods. This is packed with crafting ideas, dances, and all different things to cure and help you be a survivor living outdoors. Well, in my opinion, this could help you be ready for any reason, not just a vacation outdoors, but just in case of emergencies. I mean, who wouldn't like to learn a few helpful ideas to help heal or provide protection when you have no home or place to protect you.

What else is helpful, even for fishers, or those who love to go outside, the idea to help provide something for snake bites, cuts, and other things is always good to know too! I honestly love that this book is packed with interesting things. Plus, it's got the information and guidance you would get from Boy Scouts. So really at any age, young or old this book can come in handy.

I think what I really was interested into was how to build a campfire and learning the different fruits that are actually good for eating and which are poisonous. Plus, I love the information on learning about the stars and the animal tracks. I feel like I'm getting close to nature and learning to be one with the world. Finally, this is a wonderful book and packed, I mean packed with tons of information anyone could use and creative ideas as well as things you should know while outdoors!

Loom Magic Charms! by Becky Thomas, Monica Sweeney, and Neary Alguard

Loom Magic Charms! by Becky Thomas, Monica Sweeney, and Neary Alguard is another great book for those who love to loom with rubber bands! There are so many creative charms you can make inside and share with friends or family. The projects are simple since it's made for ages 5 and up. You could even make this a book that the entire family could join in and bond with the cool creative rubber band charms you can create and get to keep!

I honestly love the cute flower charms and the cute bananas you can create. However, there are so many like dinosaurs and animals that you can create and even objects like sunglasses and a rocket! So don't think this is only for girls, but boys could enjoy creating some charms for themselves if they'd like. Honestly, it's a fun creative way to make cute and original rubber band creations to wear or share. Maybe you can create an apple for the teacher or gift a friend with a cute monkey charm and possibly a top hat, it's just so cute and fun! Honestly, it's just a bunch of fun and so easy to do with the photos and easy to follow steps inside! Finally, this is just a wonderful book and so much fun for the family to get together and create some cool pieces to wear or share!
