Native American Headdress Craft for Kids
Teaching children about the real meaning of Thanksgiving is so important. This is a wonderful chance to talk about the Native Americans and the role they played in the first Thanksgiving. Enrich this lesson by creating a Native American Headdress as the one you see here. This head dress is perfect for little hands to craft and can be completed for just pennies. Take a look at how to get started.
NATIVE AMERICAN HEADDRESS CRAFT FOR KIDS
- Brown and tan felt
- Assorted feathers
- Craft or hot glue, glue gun
We found everything we needed at Walmart in their crafting section. Our total cost for all of our materials was just a few dollars and we bought enough to make several projects!
- Begin by cutting 2-3 strips (about 2 inches thick) of the brown felt. The number of strips will depend on the size of your child. You will need enough so that when connected, the felt fits around their head.
- Attach the strips to each other with your glue. Press them together end to end and hold in place until the glue is dry and secure. Your headband is now created.
- Embellish the head band by cutting small strips of tan felt. You can then add glue and arrange these to the brown felt. We created a simple zig zag pattern.
- Now, attach the feathers. Simply add some glue and press them to the headband. They will take a little while to dry, so don’t rush this step.
Your Native American Head Dress can now be enjoyed. Children will love wearing their headdress and seeing how they look in it, and you will love how easy and educational this craft is.
