- Levels: low, middle, high
This post is part of my ongoing series, The Alphabet Dances, which you can find here. For the letter 'U', I decided to create some ribbon wands as dancing props, something to physically dance under. I used some wooden circles that I found at a thrift shop (you can likely find some at a dollar store or craft store) and simply tied long ribbons to each.
I put on some lively music (the soundtrack from Stella & Sam -my kids are loving it) and we made our ribbon wands fly. Since our word for this dance was Under, I chose to focus on levels. I encouraged Yummy to wave her wands low, high and in the middle.
Next, Yummy and I tried dancing under each other's ribbons. We also tried making Dooter dance under our ribbons, but he was in a terrible mood which wasn't made better by tickle ribbons waving in his face. We left him to play with his trucks in the play corner.
This activity explores this Element of Dance:
