I found this art activity on Instagram and thought it was cute, have a go at making one and doing some ballet with your little charges afterwards!
All you need:
Paddle pop stick
Glue or sticky tape
Piece of ribbon about 5 – 10 centimetres long.
All you do:
Cut some triangles out of the coloured paper. Tie your piece of ribbon to the top of your stick. Draw a face underneath where the ribbon is tied/positioned. Attach the triangle onto the stick with glue or tape and Voilà you have a Ballerina!
Alternatively you could draw some hair at the top of the stick with a face and then tie the ribbon underneath or you could cut out a more detailed dress and attach it. The options are endless!
This activity enhances children to explore a favourite subject in this case a Ballerina, through a different medium.
