What you need:

Colored Pencils

White Card Stock

Construction Paper


Scissors or Paper Cutter

Step 1: Cut 2” wide strips of white card stock. 2” x 12” is a good guide for each strip. It took 2 strips stapled together for my 7 and 6 and 4 year old.

Step 2: Google Native American motifs to get pattern ideas for the band. Kids can also create their own motif design. Use the colored pencils to design your headband. Make sure to color the design on both strips. Staple the strips together to make one long strip.

Step 3: Cut various sizes of feathers from colored construction paper. First cut the shape of the feather. Next, cut small slits in a downward on each side of the feather shape. You can scrunch each side up a bit to give the feather some life.
