    What is one ribbon patsch, pop, and circle idea? Can you share any ideas or details about the partner song ideas? Thanks.

      Hold the ribbon in your hand as you patsch or circle or pop your other hand. I will try to get a post and video on that! Thanks for asking!

      I’m always so grateful for your ideas! Could you give an example for the paper cup pattern for the second part?
      Thank you!

    I am curious still about the one ribbon, pop, circle idea. How are you holding a ribbon and I’m assuming this is not a ribbon wand but a single strand of ribbon? And is that hand holding the ribbon still while the other hand is doing actions? I’m not getting this one but I am curious for more details if you can share. Thanks!!

    I would like to learn about the “Action Word Actions” and the “Rhythm Stick Roll Pattern,” but their links both take me to the “Egg Shaker Melody Map.” Can you fix those links?

    Hi! You said that the printable egg shaker melody map was on “this website.” I can’t find it however. On here or a different website? Thanks!

    Do you have any posts about the ideas for the partner song, Pray, He is there…? My Primary President really wants me to teach both songs so they can sing them together. I’d love to see what you did for the melody map and crack the code.
