Default URGENT HELP NEEDED - need to entertain a 9 year old girl

Please help, my mom is bringing over a 9 year old tomorrow who has been making some hair accessories on her own. Of course nothing magnificent, mainly just gluing flowers together etc. My mom wants me to teach her some "tricks of the trade". Problem is I am NOT a hair bow maker. I mean I make hair accessories but out of material and what not. I just recently learned how to make a double tuxedo bow (lol not sure if that's even the name - basically a pinwheel bow without the tails). That is advanced as it gets. I would love to teach her some stuff using ribbon that is very simple. Does anyone have any good ideas? Maybe small loopie clippies similiar to this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/53636981...s%5B1%5D=title or something similiar. I'd like to be able to show her 2 or 3 styles.

Thank you so much!

Cristi

i think the tuxedo bow or dbl tuxedo bow would be simple and easy for you to teach her! pony tail streamers would be good too.

Yeah the tuxedo bow was one I planned on but I wanted one or two others. I think the ribbon sculptures are to complex.

I helped an 11 year old fashion her own hair accessory for her 4H sewing project and taught her how to do the rolled fabric roses. There are some great tutorials on it and pretty painless. She was pretty amazed at what she made.

It depends on the ribbon sculpture, my 10yr old can make a ladybug clippie from start to finish without very much trouble. I just go slow with measurements & we do the steps together, I show her the step w/o glue 1st then we use glue after we know the step. Pony streamers would probably be simple enough.

Thanks, I had just come across some cute lined clippies. I think we will do those also. She will only be here for about 2 hours thankfully. I don't mind helping a little girl learn by any means. I just think that everyone sees the beautiful things I make and think of me as a hairbow maker which I am not. So, it's hard to teach a little girl things I don't know much about! I also think I'm going to give her some of my extra bottle caps and teach her how to make the bottle cap clippies. She's my moms neighbors daughter so it wouldn't be to hard to give her more of my extra's later on!
