Rainbow Dancing


Make rainbow sticks for dancing. Give each child a smooth dowel about 12 inches long, and invite him or her to tape colored strips (about 18-inches long) of crepe paper to the ends of it. Play music and encourage children to move their sticks in circles over their heads, back and forth, or down low. As children dance, let them create their own movements with their rainbow sticks.
