Make a Snowflake Headband

What You Need:

  • 1 yard of 2-inch thick silver ribbon
  • Ruler
  • White and light blue felt
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glitter

What You Do:

  1. Start by inviting your fourth-grader to measure one yard of two-inch thick silver ribbon using a ruler.
  2. Have her use white felt just like a piece of paper to cut out a snowflake for her headband. She can use a ruler to measure a 2- by 2-inch square to use for her snowflake and then cut out with a scissors.
  3. Invite your child to fold her square in half creating a triangle, and then in half again. Now she can carefully cut around the edges of the felt. It’s a bit thick, but encourage your child to work slowly – honing her concentration and fine motor skills!
  4. Encourage her to cut out a few more snowflakes of different sizes or colors to adorn her headband. Now she can arrange the snowflakes on the ribbon deciding on her final design.
  5. When she’s ready, help by getting a hot glue gun warmed up and offer assistance as needed attaching the felt snowflakes to the ribbon. She can overlap the snowflakes, or have them arranged on their own.
  6. Before wearing her headband, she can add a couple of drops of glue and sprinkles of glitter.
  7. Now she can wrap the ribbon around her head and tie at the back! These snowy headbands are a fun way to share the winter spirit and can be given to friends as gifts!
