rainbows and rubber bands...making money and chaos...childhood fads....

by Karen #1965 third grade craze???...It is the new rubber band bracelet and loom making kit...take a lookie...

Maria Halkias, staff writer for Dallas news reported the following in December of 2013.

"Often one hot trend can catapult a quarter. Irving-based Michaels Stores Inc. said that its third-quarter results improved significantly thanks to a popular children’s craft of weaving colored rubber bands into jewelry and accessories...The sales increase was the company’s biggest gain since 2005."

So....As a classroom teacher, I tell you these things are popular for all the boys and girls....If you are needing a birthday gift for the elementary age kid, these are the way to go.....If you are a teacher, you prolly are thinking, "Please, will you end fad?"  

I guess as my dad says, "It is just part of it."  Fads have been around forever. They come and go.  Throwing back my fads on Throwback Thursday...
