At horse camp we made horse refrigerator magnets out of craft foam. To make the mane we punched holes along the neck and threaded a length of old macramé string through the hole. Other ideas include: add stick on gems to make a glamorous horse or make the mane pink or purple for a very girly look. A paint stir can be glued on the bottom to make a hobby horse instead of a magnet.
This horse ear headband was made by using craft foam with a sticky back. We just cut a double of the ear and folded it over the headband. The forelock is made out of yarn bundled and tied onto the headband. The girls put on their headbands and we had a “horseless horse show”. The “judge” called for the walk, trot, and canter just like a real horse show. This could be a fun idea for a horse themed birthday party.
