Anthony, Part of my `rubber band' routine is the rubber band jumping from two fingers to the other two on the same hand. Then I put a band of each set of two fingers and have them jump past each other .. then do the last one again and this time have a third rubber band in front of the other two, insuring the bands can't escape... yet, somehow they do.. It's a really simple trick but always gets the crowd.
I also use the `star rubber bands' for the one handed star. Once the star is made on my finger tips, I then `make' the star hold it's shape. I usually give the star away if a party, program etc.
Both are simple but works easy.. I always have a bunch of `bands' with me for a quick little show...
I have been thinking about the `animal bands'. Gosh, there's lots you can do there..
Good place to get the `star rubber bands' and good `easy to see bands is http://www.ring170.homestead.com/Rubberband.html
