Craft a dress-up paper beard
Crafting any dress up is excellent fun for the kids and this is one they can do mostly by themselves – with only a little supervision. Any length, any design, kids will have a great time crafting and wearing their new beard.
What you need:
- coloured paper
- 2 lengths of string (both 15cm long)
Number of players:
Cut a piece of coloured paper in half.
Cut strips along it, always stopping when you are 3cm from the top, so it's like a fringe.
Tape each length of string to the top of each side of the paper fringe-beard.
Fasten the beard to your child's head by tying the two lengths of string together at the back of their head.
- Create layers for the beard by making two paper beards and taping them together. Use different colours.
- Play pirates and dress-up in the beards.
- Alternatively, create loops with the two lengths of string so your child can hang the beard from their ears.
