Animal Headband

animal_headband



This was created at our local Ontario Early Years Centre.

Materials:


  • the colour of paper that you choose should match the animal you are trying to make (for example, white paper for a zebra, orange paper for a tiger)
  • strip of construction paper approx 55cm long and 5cm wide (should be long enough to make a band around the child's head)
  • 2 pieces of the same coloured construction paper approx 7cm long and 4cm wide from which to cut ears
  • 1 piece of the same coloured construction paper approx 20cm long and 2cm wide from which to make a tail
  • 1 piece of black coloured construction paper approx 7cm long and 4cm wide from which to cut tail end
  • black crayons or markers to make stripes
  • scissors (have the adults precut the ears and tail pieces for the pre-schoolers)
  • glue
  • tape
Instructions:


  • lay the long strip of paper out flat
  • glue on the ears in about the centre of the strip
  • have the child draw stripes (as required) using the black crayons or markers
  • measure the long strip around the child's head and tape in a circle to make a good fit
  • glue on the black tail end to the tail
  • glue the tail on the back of the headband




You'll note that this headband is too small for our model:

Note the added detail of fringing the black tail end:
