Ribbon Wands

One of my absolute favorite props for singing time are ribbon wands!

I use them in several lesson plans through the year (find all my lesson plans using wands HERE) and in nursery (details on music in nursery HERE).  The ones I have pictured are from a company that is no longer in business but you can now purchase these at dressupwholesale.com WAHOO!  There are tons of color options HERE and HERE.

 
I also get asked frequently about other options for wands.  If you don’t have the budget for actual wands, you can make your own pretty easily and for pretty cheap!
 

I’d recommend using shower curtain rings and just about anywhere sells them including Amazon:

 

You can also get multi-colored ribbon just about anywhere too like this pack from Amazon:

The ribbon length on the wands I currently have are approximately 16″ so I’d cut these ribbons into 36″ strips.  I’d tie maybe 2 or 3 of the same colored strips around the ring, with a double knot in the center of each ribbon, securing each knot to the ring with a dab of hot glue (optional).  Then repeating with all of the colors until the ring was 1/3 – 1/2 full.

I’d also elicit the help of the Young Women or Activity Day girls in my ward as well – this would be a very easy service project that they could handle.

So I ask you – what have you done to create and use wands in your primary?  Leave a comment!

Here are several great ideas from my FB post:

 
 
You can see how I’ve incorporated wands in primary throughout my website HERE.
 
One of my favorite ways to use wands are with these wand position cards created from OCD Primary Chorister:
 
You can download them using the button below.  I’d recommend printing on card stock and laminating.  Simply hold up a card and the kids follow the action.  Change to the next card as often as you like!
 

Other ways you can use wands is to have the kids mirror you or each other, conduct the song using the time signature (learn how to lead music HERE), and more!

These wands come included in my Music Bag Starter Kit as well!  If you are interested in purchasing a Music Bag, check them out in my shop HERE.
