Easy Seussian Hats

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 :)
