Let’s get fancy this week; we’re making paper bag hats!
- Large paper grocery bag
- Glue and tape
- Pompoms, pipe cleaners, shapes cut from magazines or colored papers, other decorations
- Crayons, markers, or colored pencils/pens
- Hole punch (optional)
Step 1: Roll the top of the bag down to your desired size (height). Pinch and grip the bag as you roll it down, creating the desired circumference size for the head of the person who will wear it. Tape to secure it in place.
Step 2: Decorate the hat. Use crayons, markers and other items that you might glue or tape on.
Step 3: Coil pipe cleaners around a pen or pencil. Glue a pompom or other item at one end. Punch a hole in the hat and bend/tape the other end to the inside to make antennae or other add-ons.
Step 4: Wear your new hat!
TIPS/IDEAS: When you are rolling the top of the bag down, be gentle to avoid rips. Also, use a sandwich or small brown bag to make a hat for stuffed animal or a (cooperative) pet.
