Have you ever watched a deer twitching its ears to catch every sound in its vicinity? Animals know the importance of staying alert. These fun hats will help kids remember to “tune in” to what matters, too.
You’re sure to have supplies for this project on hand already. All you need is some strong paper, scissors, colouring pencils and tape or a stapler.
When you want your children to listen to instructions, have them put on their “listening ears.” When a child listens effectively, add a star, a sticker or draw animal tracks around his/her headband to positively reinforce attentiveness. The goal is to completely encircle the headband with animal tracks or stickers.
Note: If you choose to staple, blogger Krista suggests covering the staples with tape on the inside of the headband to keep hair from snagging.
