Here’s a “how to” for making a star out of a rubber band.
Hold a rubber band between the index and thumb of your right hand.
Point your left hand finger and slide it under the leftmost strand of the rubber band
grab the rightmost strand of the rubber band
pull your left hand back
Turn your left hand so that it is palm up
Replace your left index finger with your right pinky finger.
Compare your results with the picture above!
This picture shows the top view of your hand.
Take your left index finger and slide it inside the triangle formed between your thumb and the two strands leaving your thumb. Then bring your left index finger up to the opposite rubber band strand.
Grab the strand and pull your finger back. Pull it all the way out.
Compare with the picture above, and prepare to reach with your left middle finger under the rubber strand leaving your right pinky. Then grab the closest middle rubber band strand.
Pull your index back and adjust your fingers until you have a beautiful rubber band star.
Great job! Join us next time as we embellish the rubber band star with an “inner star.”
