DIY Pirate Headband

  • White cardstock

  • Scissors
  • Tape or staples
  • Paper Trimmer (optional)
  • Pirate Headband (download form located at the end of this post, just before the comments)


This is one of the simplest activities, ever! Just in case you need assembly directions for this, here they are.

First, download the template and print it. We recommend using a heavier weight cardstock, so the headband is more durable.

After you’ve printed it, if you plan to color it in, do that first.

Next, cut along the outline then cut out the extender pieces. We like to use paper trimmers for the straight lines because it’s faster, but if you don’t have one on hand scissors work too.

Once the pieces are cut out, attach the extender pieces to each side of the pirate hat base, with either tape or staples. We always seem to use tape, but staples work too.

Then once it’s all attached, wrap it around your child’s head to determine the size they need and tape, staple or use a paper clip to make it in the correct size.

That’s it! We told you it was amazingly simple!

Pirate Themed Pretend Play

We love the idea of dressing your child up in a pirate outfit and having them spend tons of time doing pretend play.

If you have some large cardboard boxes laying around, you can make it even more immersive by making this cardboard pirate ship for your child to play in.

These headbands are a fun summer activity for the kids to make!
