Horse Headband Craft For Kids
If your child loves horses and farm animals, they will definitely love this Horse Headband. I love sharing animal facts with my daughter while doing animal crafts.
Did you know that Horses can’t breathe through their mouths? They can only breathe through their nose, unlike humans. Horses also have special lockable tendons and ligaments that allow them to sleep standing up!
Headbands provide the opportunity to make learning about their favorite farm animals interactive. Try making all our animal headbands!
Along with amazing your kids with your knowledge of cool horse facts, you could bring in other farm animal activities like a handprint cow, toilet paper roll bunny, or cat paper bag puppet. Your kids will enjoy an afternoon spent with farm animal craft activities.

Tips & Tricks
- Get creative with decorating your headband. You could get out the paint, add glitter, or even some 3D elements like cotton balls along the mane to give your Horse Headband more dimension.
- Instead of coloring your Horse Headband, have your child pick out a colored piece of construction paper as an alternative craft version. Just trace the template on the construction paper. Then, cut out and glue or tape the headband ends together.
