We are making this Tea Party Headband today for tea party dramatic play! We got our pretend tea set out and our stuffed animal friends ready. It’s going to be so fun! Make one too!
My daughter loves to dress up and pretend she is having a tea party with all of her stuffed animals.
It’s so cute!
She goes around pretend pouring tea and asking her stuffies if they like it. I end up invited to her tea party all the time.
It really is so fun to see my daughter’s imagination at work. When I see moments like these, I want to make them even more fun for my kids.
I want to help the pretend play to last as long as possible (since play matters so much).
So, I asked my daughter if she would like to help me make a Tea Party Headband for her to wear. She said, “YES!”
If it involves paint, she is all in!
So, let’s get started making the Tea Party Headband!
I saw these easy newspaper flowers on Red Ted Art and wanted to try them out with this headband. We didn’t have any buttons. So, we used pom poms and other added things to make this headband so fun!
Here is what you need:
Tea Party Headband for Kids – Materials
- acrylic paint (we used red, pink and purple)
- foam brush
- plastic pearl beads on a string
- plastic headband
Tea Party Headband for Kids – Instructions
Step One. Setup your child’s workstation. Layout pieces of newspaper, paint and foam brushes. Have your child paint the newspaper. Sprinkle glitter on the paint before it’s dry. Then, let it dry completely. Too excited to wait? Use a blow dryer to blow dry the newspaper.
Step Two. Cut two large circles, two medium circles and two small circles out of the newspaper. Can you tell my daughter loves to paint her hand? LOL.
Step Three. Stack the circles biggest to smallest gluing them in the center as you go.
Step Four. Crinkle the edges inward to make it look like a flower (start with the smallest circles and work your way to the biggest circles).
Step Five. Have your child glue on embellishments. Such as: pom poms to the center of the flower, feathers that act as leaves, and the pearls.
Step Six. I used the felt taco shell from our last post (Taco Bar Dramatic Play for Kids) for this step. If you didn’t make that, no biggie. Simply trace a small salad plate onto the felt and cut the circle out. Next, cut two slits in the felt circle (one on each end) for the headband to fit through.
Step Seven. Glue the tulle on the felt circle (I had to use the hot glue gun for this). Then, slide the headband through the slits.
Step Eight. Glue the newspaper flower onto the felt.
You have a Tea Party Headband for your tea party fun!
