While I was working through school this week, I noticed several of my more energetic students sporting a good 5-10 rubber band bracelets. It’s amazing how you can wait 10 years, start making friendship bracelets out of rubber bands, change their name, and all of a sudden, the boys like making them even more than girls! While they were standing in line, my students were spinning them, twisting them, and rolling them in their hands. Natural fidgets!

What fidgets do you have that work well for your kids??
