Make Your Own Singing Time Ribbon Wands

If you don’t have the budget for purchasing wands, easily and inexpensively make your own!
 

I recommend 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.

Use Ribbon Wands in Singing Time

See how I incorporate ribbon wands in singing time.  Their uses are endless!
 
To use the wand cards, 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), and more!
