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 for the memory.

Here are the supplies laid so you can see what I used.

With the colored paper I cut circles with a circle cutter, or you can trace anything round that you have around the house.

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

Using the printables with the American Indian symbols, they can make their own story on their head dress.
