Follow these instructions to help your preschool child make a headband with real feathers.


  • Construction paper or poster board
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Glue
  • Feathers (optional)
  • Markers or crayons (optional)


  1. Cut a strip of brown construction paper or poster board about one and a half inches wide.
  2. Measure the length by placing the headband around your child's head and stapling the ends together to fit snugly.
  3. Cut several feather shapes out of colored construction paper (or gather some real feathers on a walk) and glue to the headband.
  4. Your child can draw a design on the headband with markers or crayons if she wishes.
