All you need for this adorable bug headband is a paper bag and pipe cleaners!
The other day we were playing outside, doing garden-type activities, and on a whim, I whipped up these simple bug headbands for the girls.
If you’ve been following along lately, you’ll know we’re all about paper bag crafts here at the moment.
To make our paper bag “bug” headband, you’ll need:
- paper bag
- pipe cleaners
How to Make a Bug Headband for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Cut a 1 to 1.5 inch wide, single strip from a paper bag.
Wrap the strip around your child’s head, and mark where the two ends join.
With some tape, join the two ends at the mark, and cut off any excess. This will be the back of your headband.
Now, fasten your two pipe cleaners toward the front of the headband by simply folding them around the band, and twisting them in place, just like this:
Curl the pipe cleaners around your finger to shape the antennae.
Told you it was simple!
And how cute are my little bugs?
All ready for a morning of play in the garden. 🙂
This would be an inexpensive and easy addition to a halloween costume too!
