How to make your Easter Egg Headband for Preschoolers:
We love these Easter Egg Headbands, as you can make them as simple or as arty as you like! You can stick to crayons and pencils.. or get super messy with glue, glitter, tissue paper and paints… you can use stickers and you can use washi tape.. you can make collages.. really, the opportunities are endless. The design shown here, is kept simple, more to share the idea, than anything else! Make this “yours” and do share with me your makes for a feature on instagram!
Begin by decorating your eggs. We like to do this “on page” as it means you can go over the lines, without worrying too much!
Once all your eggs are decorated you can cut them out.
Cutting the eggs is great scissor handling skills practice for little ones. You don’t have to worry about cutting too perfectly.. just let the kids have a go!
As mentioned, the templates come with options to make a hatching chick too… as well as adding “heart” feet and triangles for a chick version. The hatching chick template is great for practicing “zig zag” cutting!
Once you have all your eggs ready, cut out the two strips of paper that make the headband.
Glue one strip to the second strip of paper.
Measuring your child’s head as you go. Stick the end of the second strip of paper back to the first strip to make a “loop” that fits your child’s head snuggly. The paper SHOULD fit most preschoolers. If need be, use any cut offs to insert a panel for bigger children.
Then stick your chick or hatching chick to the front of the headband!
Your Easter Egg headband is done! Perfect for any Easter Bonnet parades or Sunday School activities or even Easter school plays! So fun!
