Art: Indian Headbands

We are busy preparing for our Thanksgiving Feast this Friday. Today we made Indian headbands which will serve as our party hats.

Step 1: Have the kids decorate their headband strip with makers/paint.

Step 2: Have the children pick out the colors of feathers that they would like to include on their headbands. This is a good way to help them make requests, as well as identify/learn about different colors. (I had the feathers precut, you could have your students cut the feathers out themselves depending on ability or the goals you're working on. You could also use actual feathers)

Step 3: Measure the headband to the correct length and staple. We will be taking a picture of each child in their Indian headband for their portfolio.
