The boys and I were a little bored the other day so I decided it would be fun to make some hats to go with our Dr. Seuss unit.
Here's how we made them.
|cut a head hole out of the middle of a sturdy paper plate|
*works best if the plate has a little bit of a "bowl" to it*
|glue two pieces of large red construction paper together so it's big|
enough to fit around the "bowl edge" of the paper plate
|cut white paper in to even(ish) size stripes|
|glue on white strips|
|cover backside"bowl edge" of plate with glue, fold red paper around it,|
glue edges of red paper together
Once our hats were finished we decided the best thing to do was listen to silly music and have a dance/parade.
|if like me, you cut the head hole too big - a stocking cap works wonders :)|
