This versatile craft can be used as a tambourine when singing jingle bells, a Christmas Tree Ornament, door knob decoration, or an acutal bracelet for kids.
It is a fun craft to do at a Retirement Village too. Choosing the colors and listening to the jingling of the bell is fun for everyone.
|Preschool Craft: Jingle Bell Tambourine Wreath.|
Mayhem made the tambourine above in preschool class. They used a plastic bracelet*, strips of holiday quilting scraps, and a silver bell (look right, center).
We loved the idea so much that we wanted to create our own, but we only had holiday ribbons. So we cut the ribbons in 4-6" strips.
For our ring, we purchased a door knob jingle bell decoration from dollar tree, but any bracelet will do. Our ring had a strip of bells attached to a leather strip. We cut it, leaving only one jingle bell.
Then, we simply tied our ribbons around the ring with a single knot in the center. After that, we pulled both sides of the ribbon outside the ring to form a wreath. No sew. No glue. So, easy!
If you want to make it look like a traditonal wreath, use green ribbons and fabric, paint your jingle bells* red, and glue or tie them onto the wreath.
Our ribbons all had texture- which gives the wreath activity a tactile, sensory element.
When your wreath is complete, gather your group together and sing a round of JINGLE BELLS with Musical Accompaniement. :)
