Rainbow Flutter

Noah's Ark theme at Bible School demands a rainbow craft. We made these simple rainbow flutters with the younger kids.

You will need:
     ribbon-red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
     rings-I found these in the jewelry and craft area of Hobby Lobby
I pre-cut all the ribbons since the kids were too young to do it. You need double the length of the finished flutters, I used 48". We had a bunch of helpers sit at stations, each with one color of ribbon. The kids lined up and took their ring to each station in "rainbow order" and the helpers tied the ribbons on.

We simply looped them in half and pulled the ends through to secure each ribbon. They could also be tied twice. We used the very narrow ribbons, but wider ones would work too. The kids enjoyed carrying their flutters around and waving them while running. This was a quick craft, so we did another painting project after everyone was finished.
