Toddler Friendly Magic Wand


We love Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street at our house.  The other day at lunch I was talking about her magic wand and said "I bet we can make one."  Here's what we did.

Materials
Paper Towel Roll
Markers
Stickers
Ribbon (variety of colors)
Hot Glue gun

Directions
1. Let child color and put stickers on paper towel roll.
2. Cut ribbon to desired length. I let my daughter pick the colors.
3. Adult's job: Hot glue ribbon inside magic wand and Abracadarba you've got a wand.

My daughter just loves it.  She walks around with it doing magic.  I know it might not look like much, but she created it and really that's the best part about creating anything.
