Make your own large rubber bands

You can make mega strong rubber bands by cutting slices out of a car inner tube.

The following was sent in by Robin

Cut old pantyhose and tights across each leg in different thickness none less that an inch and have a variety of different sized elastic type bands. Works great to use as headbands and ponytail holders as well as anything you'd use a rubber band for plus you'll have a much larger sizes.

my son (5years old) also uses them to make arts and crafts. The weaving looms that you buy in stores comes with colored panty hose bands...so if he looses any i can easily replace them. ( and he knows if they're missing they're probably in my bathroom being used as hair elastics.lol)
