Mouse Ear Headband

Mouse Ear Headband - Critter Crafts: Insect Craft Activities for Elementary Students

All you need is construction paper, crayons and a stapler to make yourself a Mouse Ear Headband. When you wear it, your parents might think there is a mouse in the house!


  • construction paper
  • crayons or markers
  • stapler or tape/glue


  1. Using construction paper, cut out a strip of paper about 2 inches thick and long enough to wrap around your forehead
  2. Make it a few inches longer so you can staple the ends together
  3. Fold a piece of paper in half and cut out a set of circles (a helpful idea is to find a large cup to trace around!)
  4. Cut out another smaller set of circles in pink. If you don't have colored construction paper, use crayons or markers to color in the paper.
  5. Glue the smaller circles inside each of the larger circles
  6. Put the bottom edge of each ear up against the strip of paper and staple or tape them in place
  7. Once the ears are attached, staple or tape the ends of the strip together to fit snuggly around your forehead
