Each one special. Each one unique.
As the kids in Van Meter and all over the world created more and more bracelets, one of our special friends Andy Plemmons and his students created something very special for our bracelets that are going to be sent to children in India in April.
Tinkercad to create tiny little charms to go onto the Rainbow Loom bracelets.
We just love them....They are such a beautiful addition to the bracelets.
I asked him if he wouldn't mind sending a file for the heart charm....I really wanted to see how they looked on our printer. And the 3rd graders were going to start creating their own charms using Tinkercad this week too.
He sent me the Tinkercad file and we downloaded it onto the SD card from the MakerBot 3D printer.
Our resident 3D expert Luke has been teaching our younger ones about the MakerBot.
When we got the file from Andy, the third graders knew exactly what to do.
I love how Carter and Skylar just take over and start creating tiny red heart charms for the bracelets they are all creating together for their new friends across the world.
Thank you Andy for inspiring us to be makers and for making a difference in the world by banding together with us.
