Rainbow wind wands

I was itching to craft last week. And I only had a short time in which to craft.

So wind wands it was!

From my stash, I grabbed some ribbon and wooden curtain rings. And it was as simple as cutting the ribbon (nice and long for each colour) and tying them on. As I am obsessed with rainbows, I found myself choosing a pretty rainbow of ribbon for each one.

These are such easy to make toys and lots of fun! My littlest has been enjoying his *grin* And the playgroup kids took them outside into the wind this week too.

For our Steiner school spring fair I need to make some items for the Children’s Tent (a magical tent that children can pay a dollar to enter and choose a lovely little treasure from) and I think I will make some wind wands as my contribution. They are also great last minute gifts or even party favours.

There are so many beautiful colour combinations too, like pretty pinks or the colours of fire!

Now if only I had some more time to craft!

Happy crafting, Kelly

    Oh the curtain wooden rings are such a clever idea. I’m sure I have spares in the garage. I love all things rainbows too. So good for children’s spirit, joy and play.

    Love them. We attended a rainbow party once where these were the take home gift – we still have it in our music box and the kids LOVE to dance and play with it! We’ll have to make some of our own!
