Purchase Ribbon Wands for Singing Time
Make Your Own Singing Time Wands
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.
