June 2021 - Rainbow Wand
Hello Reading Time Buddies! It is finally one of our favorite times of the year: PRIDE MONTH! This is a month for celebrating the fact that people come in every color. So, why not have a craft that reflects that? Our theme this month is Over the Rainbow, our little nod (or flaming gesture) to the Wizard of Oz. For our craft, we bring you: the Rainbow Wand!
You can find our craft kits in our usual two locations: Pocatello - Ioke the Little Free Library (8th St & Center St) Idaho Falls - The Book Shelf (575 S 3rd E)
Because this program is co-hosted by Idaho Falls Pride, you can also find kits at two pop-up events they will be having June 5th and June 12th from 10am to 1pm on the Idaho Falls Greenbelt! Look for the Rainbows! 🏳️🌈
This craft is based on this wand craft here: https://rhythmsofplay.com/diy-rainbow-ribbon-fairy-wands-for-kids/
Here is the link to the craft template:
You will need:
🌈 Glittery/colorful/shiny paper
🌈 Ribbons, in several different colors (We will be using the eight different colors of the Philadelphia Pride flag, Black, Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple.)
🌈 Liquid Glue
🌈 Paper Straw/skewer/pencil (something for the stick portion)
Make sure you tune into Over the Rainbow on Friday, June 18th at 6:00pm on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram! See you then!
