This is especially appropriate for young girls, since this is the holiday for the return of the maiden.

You will need:

  • Construction paper in your child’s favorite colors, and yellow and/or red for the flames
  • Pencil, crayon, or marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue (white glue or glue stick)

Cut a strip of paper about 2 inches wide and long enough to wrap around your child’s head. You may need to glue 2 shorter strips to get the right length. Remember to include a couple of extra inches for overlap! Draw and cut out eight thin rectangles (these are the candles) of paper. Draw and cut out eight flames and glue the flames to the candles. Draw wicks in the flames and candles. Distribute the candles evenly around the headband. Glue the candles to the outside of the headband. (You can glue it to the inside if you think your youngster will wait long enough for the glue to dry!) Depending on the age of your child, they can do the drawing, cutting and gluing. Even the youngest child can hold paper and have you guide her hands.
