How to Make a Kite Headband Craft for Kids

Before you begin, make sure you have felt in different, complementary colors, embroidery floss that matches, and some sharp scissors.

We’ve found that round edge scissors tend to be too dull to cut through the felt cleanly.

Print out the kite pattern and then cut the pieces out of the felt.

The craft will require a glue gun so make sure that an adult completes that part with child supervision.

Yield: 1 headband
