Do the colors of loom bands that you put into your creations and wear say something about you? Colors are chosen to wear for many reasons. Girls may choose loom band colors because they are their favorite colors or possibly because it matches their outfit, while boys might select a color because it is in the logo of their favorite sports team or superhero. U.S. researchers have studied color psychology and based on their findings, we have come up with a list of the most common color loom bands and their suggested meanings.

White - Pureness, Goodness, Innocence and Kindness

Pink - Courage, Power and Strength (or a lighter version of the meanings of Red)

Red - Friendship, Passion, Desire, Love and Trust

Orange - Energy, Compassion, Health, Happiness and Warmth

Yellow - Confidence, Optimism, Hope and Strength

Light Green - Earthiness, Nature, Playfulness and Youthfulness

Green - Boldness, Growth, Harmony, Fertility, Cheerfulness and Energy

Light Blue - Calmness, Clarity and Openness

Blue - Loyalty, Idealism, Healing and Protection

Dark Blue - Inspiration, Sincerity and Spirituality

Purple - Royalty, Creativity, Magic and Wisdom

Gray - Intelligence, Security and Reliability

Black - Strength, Authority, Elegance, Mystery and Power

Brown - Stability, Reliability, Dependability, Wholesomeness and Friendliness

I am sure that it requires more than one color to describe you, in fact, it could be quite a few colors that accurately describes everyone. In fact, I can accurately state that my personality shifts with my mood, my physical location (meaning I am more happy at home than at stuck in traffic) or who I am with at the time. To correctly portray my personality, it may take an entire rainbow of loom band colors.

My 9 year old son has used the color meanings and made loom band bracelets using many combinations of colors. These make really wonderful gifts as the present is not just the time put into making the bracelet but also the thought and meaning behind the color choices. As an example, he has a boy that is a best friend to him and so he weaved bracelet using the colors Black and Red because he wanted to express that they were best friends and they have a powerful friendship.

So perhaps your favorite colors are orange and pink, or maybe you want to express that you are feeling playful and full of strength, either way have fun and start crafting with these color meanings and show them off with loom bands creations.
