We are making rain sticks for Earth Day and I thought we should have Indian headbands to go with it. This way we can go outside with our rain sticks and headbands and do a rain dance! This site http://kidscraftzone.com/post/Kids-Indian-Headdress.aspx has the feather template I used and directions on how to make a headband.
What you need:
Colored cardstock paper, and brown construction paper, glue stick and hot glue gun, scissors and feather template(to print out your feathers). If you want you could free hand the feathers? I am not that good:-)
What to do:
I took my brown construction paper and glued it to white cardstock to make it stronger. Then cut out 2 strips and wrapped it around my sons head to fit. Went back and glued it with glue stick and glue gun. Then I printed out the feather template on 4 colors of cardstock and cut out. Last glue the feathers to the headband. Now it's time for a rain dance!
Our rain stick and headband. This is part of our Earth day activities at our house.
We have found that our headbands have come in handy for thanksgiving too!
Please do come and visit us again. We would love to have you back.
All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
