With the Summer Olympics starting this week, we have been talking about the history of the games. This DIY Laurel Leaf Crown is one of our favorite olympics crafts for kids.
You can also make a laurel leaf crown using pipe cleaners as fine motor practice for kids.
DIY Laurel Leaf Crown
- Dark green felt
- Light green felt
- Plastic headband
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Cut the felt into leaf-shaped pieces, using one as a template for the others. We used about 20 leaves in each color for our crown.
Hold the headband horizontally and start at the middle of the back.
Glue leaves into place two at a time, layering them under the leaves you glued previously. Work your way down to the end, adding one leaf to the very end to cover the end of the headband.
Repeat on the other side.
Fun, isn’t it?
