Indian Head Dress or Indian Head Band are always a hit and are the perfect opportunity to teach the kids about those who lived here when the pilgrims arrived, their life style, their language and pictographs, and how they saved the pilgrims lives. I have easy instructions for you as well as the pictograph printouts below.
Indian Head Dress
Brown Butcher Paper
Ruler & yard stick
Markers or crayons
Glue gun/Glue Dots
Print out of Indian Pictographs below
Patterned paper to cut circles, optional
Measure butcher paper with ruler.Make small marks at intervals across the paper, then mark with yard stick all the way across. Cut the strip.
*I cut the following measurements to have for toddlers and up through most sizes of older children. Have extra on hand so if one is ripped or a child feels they made a mistake, the headband is easily replaced and only fun is the memory. 1 1/2″ & 1 3/4″ & 2″ & 2 1/2″ These should fit any kid However, you can have the paper on hand to hurry and cut to size.
Here are the supplies laid out to be easily seen – With the colored paper I cut circles with a circle cutter, or you can trace anything round which can be glued on for decoration also.
Print these out and have them spread out for the kids to make their own story on their head band. Easy and fun for play and to learn the importance of the heritage of these great people.Copyright Carrie Groneman, 2015
