 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.

Glue guns are always useful/Glue Dots are awesome around young children

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. Indian Head Dress 1

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″  

AND   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

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.

These circles will be used for decorating the headband as you will see in the finished head band below.Indian Head Dress

Or this picture of Indian words









This one is great too- or print out ALL of them of course!!!










Have the Indian word cards printed-out and ready for the kids to make their own story on their head band. 

What an easy and fun way to learn the important heritage of another people and culture.head dress how toCopyright Carrie Groneman, 2015, 2017
