Things You'll Need: Wooden dowel, colorful ribbons, glue
Ribbon wand is an easy DIY craft that can be used by kindergartners while playing or dancing. They'll be pleased to make it themselves and then play with them. First, cut the colorful satin ribbons in the desired length and tie them one by one to the wooden dowel. Apply some glue between the dowel and ribbons so they won't slide off while playing. Let it dry for some time and...done! This is perfect for a princess-themed birthday party or for the time your kid's friends come over for a fun sleepover.
Things You'll Need: 3-inch wooden rings, thin satin ribbons
This is a pretty DIY to try if your kindergartner loves music and dance. Cut the ribbons in 36-inch strips and pass them through the wooden rings. After each ribbon reaches midway through the ring, tie a square knot. Repeat this with all ribbons and you'll have colorful dancing ribbon rings. This easy DIY teaches kids a square knot thus developing strong fine motor skills. Take our word and tie 7 ribbons in the color of the rainbow to the ring and it'll be all the more beautiful! We've all the ribbon colors in the VIBGYOR!
Things You'll Need: White headband, ribbon, marker, tacky glue
How about making a DIY ribbon craft that can be useful for your kindergartner every day? Let your kid pick her favorite color ribbon and make her own headband! Mark the headband 3 inches from both ends, this is where the ribbon should end. Cut the ribbon to match the length of the headband and paste it on with the tacky glue. Cut two small strips of ribbon and seal the place where the main ribbon ends with glue. As easy as that! If she's getting ready for a wedding, get a wide headband and paste a white satin center organza ribbon and she'll look like the perfect flower girl!
Things You'll Need: Satin ribbon, thread, fabric glue
Adorn your kindergartener's collar with a bow tie and he'll look like the smartest little gentleman. To make a bow tie, cut a satin ribbon in an 8-inch strip for the bow and a 1.5-inch strip for the middle. Apply the fabric glue on one end of the long strip and paste it with the other end. Now squeeze the bow in the center to form 3 folds, secure these folds by tying a knot in the center with a thread. Take the middle piece and wrap it around the center, don't forget to secure it with glue! Now help your kindergartener wear it by attaching it to his collar with a safety pin.
Things You'll Need: Cardboard, green craft paper, scraps of ribbon, glue
When holidays are around the corner, make your 5-year-old feel involved by teaching them an easy ribbon wreath. Cut the cardboard in the shape of a donut and paste the green craft paper over it, this makes the base of the wreath. You surely must have leftover scraps of ribbons after decorating your home for the holidays, these scraps can be used to create a wreath!
Place all the supplies in front of your little one and let them get creative! Let them paste the scraps onto the green base as they like it. This will feel like putting a puzzle together for curious minds, keeping them busy for a long crafternoon! Once done, help them tie the wreath up with a long ribbon. Easy peasy!
Things You'll Need: Wooden hoop, lots of ribbons
A ribbon windsock or a ribbon mobile is super easy to make and looks great when hung outdoors. To make it, cut all ribbons in 24-inch strips and tie them to the hoop. Remember the bigger the radius of the hoop, the more ribbons you'll need. Let your kindergartener plan this math themself to improve their cognitive thinking abilities.
Teach them a basic square knot and watch them finish the entire hoop by themselves! Add our cute polka dot ribbons to make the windsock prettier. In the end, tie a fishing line at three places on the hoop and tie their loose ends together. Hang it in your window or to a tree's branch in your yard and see it swing in the breeze!
Things You'll Need: Ribbons, charms, jump rings, glue
This is one of the easiest and the most useful DIY made out of our ribbons. It gets your kindergartner in the habit of reading and valuing their books! Cut the ribbons into 26-inch strips, slide a jump ring in the ribbon all the way to its midpoint and fold it in half, then paste the ribbon together with glue. Attach charms on the jump ring and the bookmark is ready! The bookmarks look cuter when made with our striped ribbons. Your kindergartner can use this on their alphabet books or gift it to their friends! Such charm bookmarks also act as great Christmas gifts your kids can present to your relatives. Works like a charm!
