Do you love kid activities that keeps them so busy and concentrated they can’t hear your voice calling them a million times in midst of absolute silence? I do! And this Ribbon Cutting Tray is just that!
It’s easy to set-up. All you need is a couple kid-safe scissors and a bunch of ribbon (I’ve used all sorts of ribbons I’ve found around the house!). Activities like this are my favorite. I simply use what ever I have on hand! I’ve had several odd lengths of ribbon and string I’ve had laying around the house. And this activity was perfect to use up those scraps.
