Ten satin covered Fashion Headbands in a rainbow of colors can be dressed up with ribbons, flowers, a butterfly, feathers and rhinestones for a glamorous look. They just invite kids to use their creativity while they learn design skills.
Plenty of materials to create 10 awesome accessories that kids can then wear for play or school!
Stimulate and encourage creativity
It’s important to stimulate and encourage children’s creativity, but sadly some kids already have the notion that they’re “not creative”. This is a great activity that allows your child to be creative and express themselves without it being “art”. It’s also simple enough for them to do so with very little adult supervision which encourages independence and self-confidence. The activity builds small motor skills, color awareness and construction concepts.
I made it myself!
There’s nothing more rewarding than being able to say “I made it myself!” Girls will say so with pride when they wear their own personalized creations to school or parties. Everything you need is included, except for scissors, and with so many headbands (10!) and a generous supply of decorative elements, this kit is a great birthday or slumber party activity! Or buy the kit before the holidays and your daughter can make personalized fashion headbands as gifts for all of her friends. Also perfect for scout groups, rainy days, play dates, craft clubs, big families!
This activity is easy enough for young hands – 4 to 6 year olds can do this with adult supervision, while 7 to 10 year olds can do this on their own once you help them get set up, (though beware! You may be inspired to make a few too!)

Many of the children are using the kit to make personalized gifts for their friends. What a nice touch!
