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!
