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 them use white felt just like a piece of paper to cut out a snowflake for their headband. They can use a ruler to measure a 2- by 2-inch square to use for their snowflake and then cut out with a scissors.
  3. Invite your child to fold their square in half creating a triangle, and then in half again. Now they can carefully cut around the edges of the felt. It’s a bit thick, but encourage your child to work slowly – honing their concentration and fine motor skills!
  4. Encourage them to cut out a few more snowflakes of different sizes or colors to adorn their headband. Now they can arrange the snowflakes on the ribbon deciding on their final design.
  5. When they're ready, help by getting a hot glue gun warmed up and offer assistance as needed attaching the felt snowflakes to the ribbon. They can overlap the snowflakes, or have them arranged on their own.
  6. Before wearing their headband, they can add a couple of drops of glue and sprinkles of glitter.
  7. Now they can wrap the ribbon around their 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!
