Wild Heads

What You’ll Need:

Getting into the Activity

Use natural items such as leaves, petals and blossom to create some ‘wild’ hair.

Download and print the ‘Wild Heads’ activity sheet, or create your own. This has a character’s head on, with no hair. Children need to collect natural items that they can then use to create the hair. Remember these are called ‘Wild Heads’, so the more colourful and over the top the better!

This activity could be completed in a wooded area, local park, a garden or so on. Whatever you find, as long as it is natural (and safe!), can be used.

To attach the natural objects to your character’s head, apply glue or tape to the template sheet and then place the objects on top and allow to dry.

After everyone has completed their ‘Wild Heads’, let the group show them off to each other. You could have a competition for the best looking hair.
