Part it, braid it, brush it back, but always keep it neat. Brush it once, brush it twice, keep it nice and clean. Brush and brush the tangles out, and see the lovely sheen

Craft
I printed out a "hairless" boy and girl coloring page. I put out a variety of objects for the kids to glue on as "crazy" hair: yarn, noodles, beans, chenille stems, tissue paper, etc... They can also just color the "hair" with crayons (if they choose)
Other
"We've all got Belly Buttons" is a great book for the kids to "act out" as you read.
