Every year we have fun celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2 with some fun Dr. Seuss-inspired crafts & activities to go with our favorite books.
I thought we had read them all, and then we discovered my daughter’s new favorite. After reading it we had fun with this simple Daisy-Head Mayzie craft.
This craft is fun for all ages.

Daisy-Head Mayzie Craft
To make your own daisy headbands you will need:
- construction paper
- clear tape
- 1 green pipe cleaner
- glue stick
To make the headband portion of the craft, cut 2, 2 inch thick strips of yellow construction paper.
Tape the 2 strips of paper together at one end.
To make sure the headband fits, wrap it around the child’s forward and secure the free ends together with clear tape.
Next cut a 3 inch wide yellow circle for the daisy’s center. Then cut 5-6 white construction paper petals to form your flower.
Glue the petals to the back of the daisy’s center.
Then, cut a green pipe cleaner in half to form the daisy’s stem.
Use a bit of tape to secure the stem to the back of the daisy and inside the headband.
It’s fun to wear the daisy headband craft and pretend to be Daisy-Head Mayzie.
The flower will bob around on the pipe cleaner, sure to get a few giggles.
I hope your child enjoys this Daisy-Head Mayzie craft as much as we did.
