make a paper hat

Fun, easy to make and cute as a button – we really just love paper hats! One of the best ways to use old newspapers since fish and chips, paper hats take just a couple minutes to make and add so many possibilities to playtime.

Start with a rectangle of paper and fold it in half. Then...

 

Some of our favourite things to do with them are:

  • making little matching hats for a favourite stuffed animal or doll
  • using coloured paper – black makes a nice pirate hat and red a perfect prince
  • decorating a hat made of plain paper with pencil crayons or paints
  • stapling or gluing on a couple paper flowers, cut out graphics or even real flowers

 


Great for the young at heart too!
