Other Ways to Use this template

With older kids, they may enjoy tracing and cutting out all the pieces individually on colored cardstock. Once cut, then you can build this headband with a cut layered look to make it stand out.

If the leaves are harder for kids to cut around, you can just cut them off completely if you prefer.
