With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, you may be looking for some last minute kids thanksgiving crafts to keep your smallest out of the kitchen. This is an easy, quick and fun way for kids to create (and get creative) with a Chief Headdress.
Made with paper, this DIY Chief Headdress can be easily covered with feathers cut out of cardstock, painted up, or even named!
Chief Headdress :
Thanksgiving Native American Headband
- Card stock
- paint or other decorations
- First measure the head with a piece of string. Then lay the string down and measure out your headband portion of the headdress and trim. Remember to leave some overlap for the staples.
- Now you can take the time to decorate the headdress with markers, paint, glitter, pom poms or simply name the chief it’s going on. This is fun to ask the kids what THEIR name is. My 4-year-old is Chief Snake!
- Once that is dry, you can staple together so it fits around the head. If you are using brown construction paper, you can line the construction paper with cardstock to strengthen it standing on the head.
- Now cut out “feathers” with card stock. If you do not want to use cardstock, you can also use real feathers, leaves from outside (This may be a fun scavenger hunt), or even fake leaves from the flower section at a craft store. Staple or glue your feathers on the back.
