Three different colors of t-shirt material (knit)
I had seen this page done in several ways. One way that I really wanted to do was to have a dress silhouette and the braid was the girl's hair--but it just wasn't working out. I also wanted to have three different colors, a better way to teach braiding. It is simple to make. Cut three strips from t-shirts or from knit fabric. Overlap slightly at the top and zig-zag.
I hung this up on the wall and my little girl came up, took out the braid and did it again herself. She was excited that she had figured out how to do it.
