If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.
Ribbons can add a colorful accent to your kid’s craft project. They come in so many different materials, you can use a ribbon for any project! Kids will have fun choosing patterns and textures. There are so many ways to use ribbon that are beautiful and fun! Here are some of our favorites…
DIY Ribbon Wands – Prudent Baby
Kids will have hours of outdoor and active fun watching the ribbons dance with them. These are beautiful and inexpensive toys that will bring hours of joy. Children can help by choosing the ribbon to include. Let them choose their favorite color!
Ribbon Bracelet – Phar Ma
A ribbon is an easy way to create a colorful bracelet for hands that may be too small to string beads. Children can glue felt and more to create their own unique jewelry.
Use your child’s favorite ribbon to make a magic wand even more magical. A silky ribbon will feel luxurious to little hands as they pretend to be princesses and fairies!
Ribbon Rainbow – Right at Home
Teach the colors of the rainbow with this easy recycled craft. You probably have all of the materials on hand already, and don’t they look beautiful strung up outside?
Contact Paper Jellyfish – Juggling with Kids
Creating jellyfish with contact paper and ribbon is a genius idea in my opinion. It brings the strange transparency of the jellyfish to life, and kids can add different designs to the jellyfish’s “body” for more fun! So easy!
