Blindfolds come in handy for games at children's birthday parties or a round of pinata whacking. They can even be used in a pinch for sleep masks. Make simple blindfolds without having to pull out a sewing machine or needle and thread. For party blindfolds, let the blindfold making be a part of the festivities and have kids decorate their own blindfolds.
Things You'll Need
Hot glue gun
Cut a blindfold shape out of your craft foam, felt or paper, or use a template as a guide.
Decorate the blindfold by using a hot glue gun and crystals on foam or felt, or by coloring and using stickers on a paper blindfold. Use glitter glue to draw designs or a child's name on the blindfold. Allow the blindfold to dry.
Measure and cut lengths of elastic to go around kids' heads, allowing a little extra to attach the elastic to the blindfold. Start with 10-inch lengths of elastic and adjust as necessary.
Secure the elastic by using either a hot glue gun or a stapler to attach each end of the elastic to the inside of the blindfold, so the blindfold can easily be slipped over a child's head and fit comfortably. Allow any glue to dry before the child wears the blindfold.
For a very simple blindfold, grab a bandanna and fold it into a large triangle. Fold it up until it is one long strip that can be tied around the head.
