Every year the girls dress up for St Davids Day and this year Bean wanted to be a daffodil so the Daffodil Headband was born!
It is a great craft to make with the kids as they can do so much of it themselves – which earns you extra points in our school – Bean won a prize for this!
You will need:
- Egg box
- Yellow Paint
- Orange Paint
- Old Headband
- Green pipecleaners
Cut out two cups from the eggbox. Poke little holes in the centre of each with the scissors. Paint them orange. Draw petal shapes onto the card, paint them yellow (or use yellow card!!) and cut them out. Make a hole in the end of each petal with the scissors.
When the paint is dry line up about 5 or 6 petals behind the egg box cup and poke a pipe cleaner through all the petals and the egg box, curling the end of the pipecleaner in the middle of the flower so that they hold in place.
Then bend the pipe cleaner downwards and twist around the headband so that they poke up! I re-enforced the stalk by twisting another pipe cleaner around the stem.
