Movement Ribbons

The Butterflies went to the forest to explore movement. 

They took a variety of different movement ribbons with a range of colours, fabrics and lengths to explore the movement they could make with them.

Children used large bodily movement to attempt to move the ribbon in different ways.

Noticing that different arm and body movements made the ribbon move in different ways. 

Some children also noticed that the wind played a part and watched as the ribbon moved when they held it high on the air. 

The children moved their whole bodies consistently to move the ribbon. 

It was a very exciting physical activity to try making new movements.
