Nursery Props #2 - Ribbon Wands

This idea is not my own, in fact it has been around for centuries, I'm sure.  I can just imagine some midieval child running around a muddy field with one of these in her hand trailing behind her in the wind.  But I digress.  I made these to sing with "Give, Said the Little Stream," and the kids are enthralled every time I bring them.  They just love to run around and twist the ribbons around in the air.  I have a very young nursery this year, with only 2 of about 10 that are over the age of 2.  So anything simple that gets them moving is HUGE.  They also don't do a lot of singing, given their age, but I love to see them get excited. 

I put them together quite simply - with popsicle sticks, and 4 lengths of ribbon in different colors and lengths.  Have fun!

Pin It Now!


  1. How did you attach the ribbons? Tape? Glue? These look so cute and simple. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Alberta...
    I used craft glue to attach the ribbon, and they've held up really well.

  3. I totally did this for my Junior Primary. We have 20 new sunbeams and they are having a really hard time sitting still. They loved this! Thanks soooo much for the fabulous Idea!

  4. Thanks for the idea! I plan to make these (hopefully soon).

  5. Oh...this blog is great! Thanks!!
