Indian Head Dress*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.Indian Head Dress
