Ribbon games

Making shapes with ribbons and scarves is a fun and easy way to get moving.

Take either a long piece of ribbon or a scarf and tie it on to a piece of wood. Use your imagination and make up games. Here's some ideas to try:

  • try making animal shapes in the air
  • run, jump or skip while keeping the ribbon moving
  • move to music
  • see if one person can run through the shape without touching the ribbon.
