Mouse Ears Headband

Materials Needed:
· Construction paper
· Pencil
· Glue
· Large cup
· Small cup

What to Do:

Step One:  Cut out a black strip of construction paper to wrap around your child's forehead. Make it about two inches wide and leave an extra inch length-wise for the last step.

Step Two:  Fold a black piece of construction paper in half. Trace two circles from the cup onto the paper and cut them out.

Step Three:  Trace two circles with the smaller cup onto pink construction paper.

Step Four:  Cut out the pink circles and glue one in the middle of each black circle. These are the "ears."

Step Five:  Put an edge of each ear up against the strip of paper and glue them in place.

Step Six:  When the glue dries, staple or tape the ends of the strip together to fit snugly around your child's forehead.
