25 Things To Do With Silly Bandz

Updated on November 5, 2014

Many Uses of Silly Bands

Okay, we all know what Silly Bandz are. If you aren't sure, then just walk up to most any child in any city and you will see a nice variety of colored bracelets that turn into animal shapes as well as many other things.

Silly Bandz are like the hottest toy of 2010 for kids and teenagers everywhere. Most kids use silly bandz as bracelets or anklets and they like to collect them.

But Silly Bandz Bracelets also have many other uses. Here is my list of 25 uses of Silly Bandz that I was able to come up with. But I bet you could come up some more ideas.

What do you do with Silly Bandz? Be sure to share your ideas in the guest book.

#1. Collecting Silly Bandz

#1 Collect Them! Let's face it we love to collect things. And kids are no different. It is so much fun to see how many different and rare silly bands you can find and collect. It is a competition to see who has the most. And many kids have lots and lots of silly bands. I've seen silly bands in all sorts of shapes and sizes. But when collecting gets out of control then you move on to hoarding.

#2 Hoarding. I know it sounds crazy but since silly bandz are so popular and in expensive many kids take the fun all the way to the next level. I like to call it hoarding. I mean at some point, isn't more than a handful enough?

#3 Trading. And of course if you want to collect all of the different shapes then you will need to start to trade your silly rubber band bracelets with other silly bandz collectors.

      I think the same as Cari Kay- picking them up from the floor! apart from that, it is very important to have the right combination of colors around the wrist! So buying and complementing the collection!

      What will those clever marketing folks come up with next? These look fun.

      I made a rubber band harp as a kid. Hammer nails into a flat scrap of wood and then string different strengths and sizes of rubber bands between them. I was always inventing new configurations to get different sounds.

      I sure wish that I had thought up Silly Bandz. They are sure the craze right now and I enjoyed reading the list of 25 Things To Do With Silly Bandz. My grandson wants to make a ball with his so we will see. Blessed.

      You could use them to hold a bag of chips closed.

      I never thought to give them out for Halloween. They are getting cheap enough that you could toss one band into each bag. Great idea!
