Age 2 and up

One of my favorite things to do as a child and even now as an adult, is to dance and flow with ribbon. It’s like having a fairy wand where you can see the magic trail around you. This is a very easy craft for children of all ages to make and then spend hours playing with.

Here is another straightforward craft for your little dancer. Your child gets to color and create a tiny popsicle ballerina with a colorful cupcake wrapper tutu. Bonus points if you make enough that your child can act out a full dance class!

Age 4 and up

This craft makes the list because it combines science and art. Your child will love making their animal “dance” its paper clip arms and legs using a magnet. Put on a song and watch those crazy metal limbs boogie!

Age 6 and up

I always love a project you can wear when you are done making it (I have a degree in fashion design to prove it). These hair tie tutus don’t require too many materials and your dancer can wear it to ballet class around her bun!

Age 8 and up

This ballerina craft just might be your next window ornament or special gift to Grandma. These wire ballerinas can bend into different positions and look beautiful hanging from a ribbon. If you want to up your craft game and make fairy ballerinas, check out the second link for making fairy wings out of my favorite fiber at the moment, Angelina Fantasy Film.
