This is a quick craft you can do together this Fall if you are teaching your child about the early American Indians.
Materials needed: Construction paper, craft feathers, tape or glue, pencil, ruler, scissors, tape measure (optional).
What to do: Measure your child’s head span with the tape measure or even the construction paper. Then draw a line on the construction paper with the length of the measurement. (If the construction paper does not fit, you can double the amount and adjust the size by gluing or taping it).
Next, cut out the measured construction paper and lay it out on a flat surface. Tape the feathers on one side of the construction paper (see photo below). Our child helped layer the feathers while I taped them. (I think the tape worked much better in this step, rather than glue). Finally, tape the ends of the hat/headband together and put it on the child’s head.

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness (Proverbs 31:27, KJV).
