For this activity, we made headband holders made out of oatmeal containers. Since we collected the oatmeal containers for a little while before the activity and got the candlestick at the dollar store, this activity should only cost the candlesticks + supplies.... no more than 1.50 per girl.
Here is what you will need:
- oatmeal containers
- modge podge
- foam brushes
- paper (2 12x12 pieces for each girl, with some left over)
- candle sticks (found at the dollar store)
- hot glue gun or strong glue
Each girl needs an oatmeal container and candlestick....
First we had the girls pick out what paper they wanted. In order to cover the whole oatmeal container, we had the girls pick two pieces of 12x12 paper and then cut it to size. Then we had the girls modge podge the paper to the oatmeal container.
Some of the oatmeal containers had print on the top of the lid, so some girls cut out a circle and glued that to the top of the lid. Then you just glue the candlestick to the bottom of the oatmeal container, and there you go!
I think they turned out really cute!
Then to finish them off, have each of the girls write their favorite scripture on the bottom of the lid. We pretty much ran out of time... so I also suggest having a scripture ready for them. With this headband holder conveniently in their room, whenever they want to read their favorite scripture, all they have to do is look at the bottom of their lid.
