Crazy Hair Craft

12 Jul

Have you ever gone to work with crazy looking hair because you didn’t have enough time to fix it in the morning? Do you need a valid excuse to explain why it might look unkempt? How about a crazy hair themed story time? There are some really good stories about hair out there and you can try this fun craft.

Supplies required: construction paper  in flesh tones, scissors, a pen or a marker, glue, tape and a Popsicle stick, stir stick or straw and something that has a hair-like quality such as feathered thread or yarn. Remember, the more colours you have as an option for the hair the crazier the hairdos can be!

Step 1: Create a template of the head, eyes and mouth as seen below.
Step 2: Trace and cut out the head template on flesh toned pieces of construction paper. Cut the eyes out on white paper and the mouths out on black.
Step 3:
Draw on any additional detail on the cut pieces such as pupils on the eyes and nose on the face.
Step 4: Cut various lengths of hair material.
Step 5: Glue mouth and eyes on a face.
Step 6: Choose however much hair and whatever colours you like and glue them on top of the head. Some creative kids might even choose to add a bit of facial hair as well.
Step 7: Let it dry.
Step 8: Once dry you can attach the head to the stick or straw using tape.

Now you have some puppets with some crazy hair and a reason to mess yours up a bit!
