• Long stick or dowel
• Fabric scraps or crepe paper
• Gift bow
Help your child make a magic wand which he or she can use to make spells, make people disappear, and make wishes come true. Wrap the stick in strips of colorful fabric or crepe paper. Glue on some sequins. Attach a gift bow or streamers to the top. Glue more sequins on the top piece. Let it dry. Now the wand is ready for its magical use.
