Rainbow Bird Streamers {Tutorial}

Rainbow Bird Streamers {Tutorial}


Before school let out, I happened by my son’s preschool while they were on the playground. I still smile thinking about what I saw this group of little ones doing–vibrantly using their imaginations with simple props. Holding the handles of long streamers that trailed behind them, they chased each other through the playground as “rainbow birds,” arms out, giggling and little legs pumping as quickly as they could. It was one of those true parental treats to witness.

The rainbow streamers were just as fun for an elementary school child as for my pre-schooler. Spinning, twirling and just making the streamers dance were a great deal of fun. Not to mention all the running with the streamers went a long way to creating some well-exercised and worn-out children.

And the most fabulous part of these streamers? They are made from jump rope handles and plastic tablecloths I purchased at the dollar store and take about 10 minutes to make. The rainbow streamers would also make for a fun activity at a rainbow party.
