From the blogger: "A simple homemade toy, Waldorf Hand Kites have been a staple in our playroom for years. This year we’re making sweet Jingle Bell Hand Kites for all the littles on our Christmas list! This easy, kid-made Waldorf Kite makes a beautiful homemade gift for a toddler or preschooler or a great party favor! Swap out the colors depending on the season and occasion! I think these would look awesome at a school play or Christmas parade, too."

Materials List

  • Wooden ring (can use an old bracelet or shower ring)
  • Jingle bells
  • Two to three colors of ribbon
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Polish or buff the ring until completely smooth. Dry if necessary.

  2. Cut the ribbons in equal lengths; I suggest not longer than the height of the child using it.

  3. Tie the ribbons to the ring so that they loop around the ring and are essentially folded in half (doubling the amount of streamers). There are several types of knots that work for this, so stick within your child's skill level.

  4. Attach all ribbons in a pattern, as desired.

  5. Thread the bells on one half of the ribbon and then securely double knot with the second half of the ribbon into place.

  6. You can alternate colors of jingle bells. We also preferred to skip a ribbon in between jingle bells to avoid crowding, but with thicker ribbon, you won't have as much of an issue.
