Singing Time Ribbon Wands


One of my absolute favorite items to use in singing time are ribbon wands!  They provide wonderful movement, are mesmerizing and can be used in a variety of ways!  So get yourself some ribbon wands and use them with your Primary in singing time!

Purchase Ribbon Wands for Singing Time

I use wands in singing time ALL THE TIME!  My favorite company to purchase wands is (which I’m not affiliated with).  There are tons of color options HERE and HERE.

Make Your Own Singing Time Wands

If you don’t have the budget for purchasing wands, you can make your own very easily and they are very inexpensive!

I recommend using shower curtain rings.  Just about anywhere sells them including Amazon (Amazon affiliate link):


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

The ribbon length on the wands I currently have are approximately 16.” So to make your own, cut these ribbons into 36″ strips.  Then tie 2 or 3 of the same colored strips around the ring, with a double knot in the center of each ribbon.  Secure each knot to the ring with a dab of hot glue (optional).  Then repeat with all of the colors until the ring is 1/3 – 1/2 full.

Elicit the help of the Young Women or Activity Day girls in your ward!  This makes for a very easy service project that they can EASILY handle.

How Do You Create Ribbon Wands

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

Here are several great ideas when I asked this question on the Primary Music Leaders FB post:

Another idea was shared HERE.
Or one of my favorite ways to use wands are with these wand position cards created from OCD Primary Chorister:
Wand Action Cards
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!

You can see how I incorporate wands in singing time HERE.
