Jingle Bell Craft


New Christmas craft!

"Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the waaaaaaay!"

Come on, sing it with me! :)




This craft idea comes from Daria Music!

http://www.dariamusic.com/

Daria Music has a new Jingle Bell craft booklet out and we have enjoyed doing one of her crafts!

The materials gathered are sticks (or even unsharpened pencils), pipe cleaners, bells, and we used some tape to keep it all on the stick.



Twist pipe cleaners around your stick and at intervals thread bells on the pipe cleaners as you work your way down the stick.  Stop about two-thirds down the stick to have a hand space to hold the stick.  Great finger work, fine motor skills, and eye-hand coordination for kids.


We wrapped a long piece of tape around the top and around the bottom of the stick to keep the pipe cleaners tight and secure, so there would be no slipping off with all that vigorous shaking!  :)


All there's left to do is.... Blast your Jingle Bell Rock and shake those bells!


Butterfly and her friends love musical instruments, I found them coming back to these throughout the day to play them.


Very easy no-mess craft!  Great craft idea for a Christmas party, and great instruments for a Christmas play!
