If your kids have longer hair, you can have some fun with colorful rubber bands. Part your kid’s hair into some sections. Make sure the lines of scalp is visible, so you have to make them as straight as possible. Next, you can either braid or twist each section and secure it with colorful bands. If you prefer to have ribbon in each section, then there you go. Or, you can make two ponytails in each side of your kid’s head, and wrap some colorful bands in several inches. And braid the rest of the hair.
