Dance Ribbon

Dance Ribbon (6)

This easy dance ribbon made the perfect rhythmic accessory for Veronika’s at-home music class today! I put it together just before class, and she continued to play with it long after the Zoom session had ended.

First, tie lengths of colorful ribbon to a ring that your toddler can easily hold. I used a canning ring for this, but a shower curtain ring or even key chain would work, too!

I alternated strands of green and pink ribbon. You can make your dance ribbon with one color, two, or a full rainbow!

I handed the ring to Veronika and showed her how to wave it through the air to the rhythm.

A lilting, slow tune felt just right for making big beautiful ribbon circles. Your toddler can take it from there!

She loved waving the ribbons around and dancing with them, and requested a tutu to be a ballerina!

She also later found other uses for it, like pretending it was her doll’s swing on the playground! I always love watching the way toddlers can invent worlds of imagination from just a few simple materials.
