Equipment Name:Ribbon Bands
Materials Needed:1 1/2 yards of colored ribbon any length, about 6 to 7 inches of 1/2 inch elastic band for each band.
Rationale:We work with children who are younger, we thought that it would be easier for the younger children to handle ribbon bands instead of ribbon sticks. The children can slip the bands over there hands and use them the same as ribbon sticks.
Directions For Making:
Take a yard and a half of ribbon and cut into two uneven lengths. Place the ribbon on the inside of the elastic, placing the two edges together and sew it. Trim the excess edge, turn inside out and use.
