I made about ten of them last Christmas as gifts for all my friends’ children; each one cost $2 and took about 5 minutes to make. But I just LOVE them. We take them to the park on windy days and run and twirl and spin and giggle as our ribbon kites fly behind us. So simple, so beautiful.
All you need is a wooden curtain ring and some ribbon. I decided on four different shades of the same colour; Jack chose pink, but I also made blue, green, yellow and my favourite, purple. I used two metres of each shade so they would be nice and long and whimsical. Simply fold the ribbon in half and loop through the curtain ring. Easy.
