Ribbon Sticks

I have coveted these ribbon sticks called carnival sticks fromJabadao national centre for movement, learning and health, the most wonderful organisation dedicated to creative movement opportunities.

In a moment of creative inspiration with only a short time on my hands and a need for something extra for a gift for a baby I made a couple of similar sticks. All I used were a pair of old think stripy tights, craft ribbon/ braid (non fray) and pencils with the end blunted (I didn't have any dowel).

Having a bit more time that originally thought I made a little container to put them in, and to work on fine motor skills too. I think I'll be making a rather large set of these.
