Just in time for Thanksgiving! This is the project the kids made while the adults prepared for dinner. Perfect way for kids to keep occupied.
Native American Headpiece
- 1 sheet of construction paper for headband and any amount for feathers
- 1 popsicle stick (optional)
- template for feather (included in steps) or a real feather
- print template for feather
- cut template out
- trace onto construction paper and cut out
- cut out 2 (or more) straight strips of paper (about 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide; use as many strips as you need for it to wrap around your head)
- tape strips together to connect each piece but do not close the circle yet. The strips should lay flat first
- color and/or decorate the head-band and/or feather and add designs (optional)
- tape completed feather to the inside of the head band
- tape each ends of the head band together to complete the circle, but make sure it fits around your head first!
- optional: if the construction you use for the feather is too thin, when you trace the feather onto the construction paper, either fold it in half or use two sheets. If it’s still too thin and it’s not standing up right, use the popsicle stick and glue or tape it between the two sheets of feather.
- big black construction paper
- 1 small piece of yellow construction paper
- cut hat out of the paper (be sure to cut near the edges to save room for strips)
- cut out 2 black strips
- cut out yellow buckle
- tape buckle to hat
- staple two strips to each end of hat
- measure the right size so it fits
- staple to complete
