Independence Day is quickly approaching and I wanted to whip something up for my oldest daughter that would be fun for her to play with while teaching her the importance of the day.
So, I grabbed some red, white and blue ribbon from my stash and went to town. I came up with this super easy toy for kids that would be a GREAT alternative to sparklers.
No fear of kids getting burned, YAY!
I chose a thinner grosgrain ribbon so they would be easier to tie to the dowel.
Tie the ribbon to the end of your dowel rod. I double knotted mine and it made it extra secure. You could also glue the ribbon to the dowel if you would like. Since the end of my dowel had been notched out, it kept the ribbon pretty secure.
And there you have it. You’re done! Give your new ribbon wants to your kids and let them have fun!
