So, what are you waiting for? Let’s make a Thanksgiving inspired Native American headband craft with the kids!
Craft items you will need:
- Construction paper
- Feathers, stickers, glitter, beads, etc
- Scotch tape
Have the children cut a headband out from construction paper. The headband should be a little bit larger than the child’s head.
Once cut, using scotch tape, have the children tape the headband together.
Next, have the children draw and cut out feathers, in a variety of colors, from construction paper.
Then, have the children glue the feathers to the inside of their headband.
After that, let the children go wild decorating their headband with feathers, stickers and glitter.
And, voila, the children have now made their very own Thanksgiving Native American Headband craft.
