Rainbow Loom Ban

Rainbow Loom Bracelets Banned From 2 NY Schools

Two New York City schools have banned the popular Rainbow Loom bracelets, saying the woven rubber band bracelets were distracting to “addicted” students, and they were getting in the way of learning, Huffington Post reports.

However, some parents say the ban is silly. For more on why they think making bracelets is educational, read the whole story on the Huffington Post
