Hi, my name is Christina, and this is how to make a runner's baton for kids. Using construction paper and a paper towel tube, runner's batons can add lots of excitement to so many kid's games. For this we're going to be using a paper towel tube, glue stick, ruler, two types of construction paper, and scissors and a pen. First we're going to use our paper towel tube to mark the paper to size. Now using a straight edge we're going to mark our lines straight. Go ahead and cut this out. Next we're going to make fringe for either end. We're going to fold the paper in half. Using our first piece of construction paper, I'm going to mark my measurements. I'm going to mark a straight line about 3 inches down, and then mark a straight line across. Next we're going to cut it out. The last cutting we're going to do is to cut fringe into our orange paper. I'm just going to cut lines, I'm leaving about three-quarters an inch of space. Using our glue stick, I'm going to glue the fringe down on either side of the tube first. Next we're going to glue on our baton cover. Making a kid's runner baton is not only fun, but it's also a safe baton for them to use. It's soft, so it's not going to hurt anyone if it gets dropped or thrown, and it's also a great way to add flare to sports activities. Thanks for watching.
