This simple, and fun 4th July patriotic parade wand will leave your kids feeling extra PROUD as they cheer along the 4th July parade.
Cut your ribbon into equal lengths. Once you have a large pile, fasten them to your dowel using a large piece of duct tape.
Use a thick piece of duct tape and twist it from top to bottom of the dowel so that the entire wood is covered. Then use the thinner duct tap and repeat the step, leaving enough gap in-between loops to see the colors of the larger duct tape pop through. Cut the ends, and the parade stick is complete!
If you do not have ribbon, you can use paper cut into strips!
