Default headband for a 3 year old

What size headband looks best on a 3 year old? I'm going to make some for a friend's dd as a surprise. I've never done one for a child that small. TIA!

Duh- The hard plastic ones. She has one that is really cute on her, so I want to make her an assortment of colors. But, I don't want to ask her mom and spoil the surprise.

I find the regular hard plastic ones to be fine for that age, although I think the 1/2'' or 3/8'' ones look better (and seem to fit better) than the 1''. HTH!

Thanks! I was thinking 1/2" but didn't know if it would overwhelm her little head. I'll go ahead and do that size. I appreciate the help!

I found some headbands at wal-mart that are smaller in length. They are made for toddlers. I made one for my 3 yr old niece and it fit her perfectly. I found them in the baby section on the rack with the hair bows. There are 6 in the package and they are covered but I just cut the covering off and it looks just like the ones that you order from the ribbon sites.

My daughter is 4 and the plastic headbands don't tend to fit her yet. I have tried the Goody girls headbands. If you find something smaller than those, it might work.

Oooh, what a great idea!!! I'm making some headbands for my neices and wondered about how well they'd fit on toddlers.
