With your help, even the very young can participate in this activity.

Mouse Ears Headband

Materials Needed: • Construction Paper • Crayons or Markers • Stapler or Tape

Instructions:

Using construction paper, cut out a strip of paper about 2 inches thick and long enough to wrap around your fore head (make sure you make it an inch or two longer so you can staple the ends together.) Next, fold a piece of paper in half and cut out a set of circles. A helpful idea is to find a large cup to trace around! Cut out another smaller set of circles in pink and glue them inside the larger circles. Put the bottom edge of each ear up against the strip of paper and staple or tape them in place. Once the ears are attached, staple or tape the ends of the strip together to snuggly fit around the child’s forehead. ~Alligator Clip-On –one of the great kids craft projects for those who are elementary school age.
