Snowflake Loom Bands
I’ve been wanting to make these for a while. Fun Loom Bands can be full of creativity. They seemed the perfect medium to use for creating snowflake patterns and demonstrating the six fold symmetry.
Hexagonal Snowflake Geometry
Usual practice with loom bands is to work in rows. Here we work in the round securing the design at the six corners of a hexagon within a circle.
The simple repeated actions bring awareness of the geometry and numbers present in this little crystalized bit of nature.
Look again at Hexagonal Geometry in Snowflakes, remember that whatever pattern is created it has to be completed a total of 6 times around the hexagon.
