Default I need to make...

a handful of bows for a bunch of 4 years olds for their ballet class. Do you think I should just do a simple pinwheel type bow on an alligator clip? I'm going to use my ballet slipper ribbon (white with pink shoes).

So they are 4 years old, have to wear their hair in a pony or a bun. I'm thinking maybe a 3-4" bow will be plenty big enough. I can do a basic bow with tails down and make the tails maybe a little longer to go around the pony/bun.

What do you think?

Either way would be cute..but do you think you should do clip or barrettes b/c the clip wouldn't it be easier to fall off??? hmmm I'm seeing lil kids jumping around and it tilting I dunno I haven't seen anyone dance in awhile who knows my imagination is running wild...

Most 4 year olds I know use alligator clips and go straight to pony o's. French barrettes just aren't that popular around me.

I like the idea of having tails lie along the pony/bun.

I like the idea of the tails being long too.

All three are cute. If you want to do the alligator clips then make them no slip. The small french ones will work if the don't have baby fine hair. You could also do side by side bows also in 7/8.

Ok i'm going to ask her the kids hair types. My dd has pretty fine crazy messy thin hair and if I put her hair in a pony, I can use a huge alligator clip on her. Off to ask!
