Dance Ribbon Ring

My daughter, who is 4.5, has been really into crafts lately.  She loves to draw, color, paint, do small art projects, etc.  After daycare she decided she wanted to make something tonight.  I pulled up Pinterest and showed her my kids craft board and told her to scroll through it to find something she would like to make.

She decided she wanted to make a Dance Ribbon Ring. The tutorial I used is found here Dance Ribbon Ring I have a ton of ribbon, so I knew we would have that on hand.  The directions said to use a wooden curtain ring for the ring portion. I didn't have this on hand, so we went in search for something to use.  I found a small white frame in with my cross stitching supplies. I unscrewed the hanger and was left with a small white ring.  

Addison picked out four different ribbons that she liked. She decided on two pink, a white and a silver.  I measured out the ribbon into 4 foot lengths and she used scissors to cut the ribbon. Then I knotted the ribbon onto the frame.

I remember when I was little, back in the 80's, having something just like this only bigger. I think I received it as a birthday gift. 

She was very happy with how it turned out and I think it's very cute. She is now asking for a "dance party" so she can dance with her friends and use the dance ribbon ring.
