Crafts for Kids Using Ribbons

December 10, 2020


One of our favourite craft materials is ribbon. A length of ribbon is so pretty and can be added to all sorts of crafts. One way we use ribbons a lot is to tie it to the end of a fairy wand. It is great to use for dancing. There are so many stunning ribbons you can buy with millions of different colours and patterns.


The way we use ribbons the most is with threading. Ribbon is silkier than wool and feels nicer – although it is a bit harder to manipulate. I always tie a small length of a pipe cleaner to the end to make it easier to thread.

We first cut out shapes. This can be any shape you choose. It’s a fun way to practice cutting skills. The twins are 3 and really love cutting.

Then they cut the holes using a hole punch. One with a single hole works best as it is easier to cut a hole where you want it. Sometimes we use a shaped punch as well.

Then a lot of concentration is need to thread. As we have done this activity a few times the twins can now do it independently.

Charlotte wanted to make a star across the middle of hers to make it even prettier.

After that they decorated the shapes with lots of stickers. They make great designs for the front of cards. The girls took theirs in to give to a friend at nursery.
