week 4: diy unicorn headband
duration: 2 hours
This week's challenge is slightly different than usual, since it was my daughter's birthday. We organised a unicorn theme party and I wanted to share this colourful arts & crafts activity.
Here is your template for this week's challenge:
1. get your unicorn party supplies
You will need:
- Scissors and glue/glue gun
- Headbands; You can find cheap volume packs on Amazon, I got mine at H&M, packs of 3. If budget allows, you can also buy headbands complete with horn and ears.
- Colourful felt for the horn and ears.
- Unicorn headband decorations; You can decorate the horn and headband with anything you fancy, think paper and satin flowers, feathers, colourful thread for the manes, gems, star stickers, pompoms and glitters.
- For some quick inspiration on horns, ears and decorations, check this Pinterest board.
2. START THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE:
DIY Unicorn Headband
- First, make the horn and ears and attach to the headband. I used this template. Depending on the age of the children, you might want to handle this part yourself, it's a little tricky to glue the horn and cut the ears properly. I prepared this the day before to save time and to let the glue dry.
- Then let the kids use their creativity and imagination to create their magical unicorn headbands.
- Once one side is done, flip it over and start again! Kids can decorate 360, meaning many more minutes crafting fun!
- Don't forget to take pictures of your unicorns and centaurs and show them off to our community on Facebook.
week 4: diy unicorn headband - results
We had 15 boys and girls crafting their own unicorn and centaur headbands. I didn't think it would keep them busy for this long, but they all took great care and pride in decorating their horns. They even wore them to school the next day!
