Materials you’ll need:

Yep. That’s all you need!

To make the crown:

  1. Clip the faux leaves off of the stems
  2. Cut a small incision into the middle of the leaf
  3. Choose 1-2 pipe cleaners (depending on the size of your child’s head)
  4. Thread several leaves onto the pipe cleaner
  5. Twist the end of the pipe cleaner together to create a crown

Host your own mini-Olympics at home and give away the crowns as medals!
