This was the perfect afternoon activity. Quick and easy! Totally up my alley. Best of all, the girls were engaged as we were making it and loved playing with it after.
After we were done, I had them retell the whole process back to me. It was good to determine their retelling skills and their understanding of sequential order. Adding a bit of a twist to a little craft and applying it to comprehension.
When I was little, I remember frequently making my own ribbon wands using toilet paper. From what I remember, it didn't work so well. I just adored watching gymnastics and the girls who did the floor routine with the ribbon wands. I would pretend I was them. I thought they were so fancy and wanted to be fancy too! I think my girls feel pretty fancy with their own ribbon wands.
p.s. we had to move around our meal planning this week, so the menu for next week and recap of this week will be up tomorrow morning!
