Materials Needed:

  1. Trimmers Packet, any kind
  2. Alphabet Display Letters, any kind
  3. Clear overhead transparencies
  4. Clear tape

  1. Provide one trimmer strip for each child. Cut for them, or have the students cut the trimmer strip to the circumference of their heads plus 2cm.
  2. Cut the overhead transparencies into 1" x 41⁄4" pieces.
  3. Tape one of the clear transparency pieces to the centre, front of the trimmer to create a pocket. Tape along the bottom edge and along the two sides with clear tape.
  4. Form a circle (crown) with the trimmer by overlapping and stapling the two ends.
