Arts & Crafts: Hats

Golden Crown added 1-18-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: 1-9x12 sheet of yellow construction paper, scissors, clear Con-Tact paper, crayons, paints, stickers, glue stick and glitter.

Directions: Have child decorate one side of paper using any or all: crayons, paints, stickers, and glue stick and glitter (do the glitter last!). Cover both sides of the paper with Con-Tact paper. Cut the paper in half length-wise, then use scissors to make a wavy edge on one long edge of each half. Attach short ends of two halves with Con-Tact paper. Wrap loose ends around child's head, to measure proper size of crown. Cut off excess paper and attach loose ends with Con-Tact paper. Let the
coronation begin!


Create Your Own Silly Hat added 1-18-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: Many supplies (see below)

Directions: Make hats out of paper (cone hats, paper plate bonnets, crowns out of
bulletin board boarder, etc.).  Have a huge supply of anything and everything you
can think of-- odds and ends, whatever-- available for kids to attach to their hats to make silly hats.


Silly Hat Day added 1-18-01 Original Author Unknown

Go by your painters store and ask if you can buy a painters hat for your kids to decorate for school and they will probably just give it to you for free. Give one hat to each child.  Tell your child(ren) that it is silly hat day on (pick a date) and they can decorate the hat any way they want.  Here are some examples:

Glue:  dry beans, buttons, mini micro cars, hard candy, yarn, flowers, fake bugs, pictures, etc. or use fabric paint and jewels or beads, etc and just let them go and have fun.


Decorate Hats added 1-18-01 Original Author Unknown

Fold a paper hat out of newspaper. Make hats and decorate them with feathers, glitter, etc.


Hat Collages added 1-18-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: Magazines, scissors, paper, glue

Directions: Let the children find pictures of hats in old magazines. Then they can
paste the pictures onto a precut hat shape. Display around the room. (This can
be done with any piece of clothing, e.g., socks, coats, shirts, pants)


Hats  added 1-18-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: paper, ribbon, glue, crepe paper

Directions: Make hats for princes and princess, tri-fold newspaper hats for boys, cone hats with ribbon or crepe paper to hang from top for girls. Decorate as you wish.


Crowns added 9-9-02 Submitted By: Donna Moran

Need: paper plate, glue, glitter, utility knife(ADULT Only!)

Directions: Take a paper plate and, with an utility knife (ADULT Only!), cut the center just like you would a pie, stopping before the outer rim of the plate.  Gently fold up the triangle pieces to form a crown.  Decorate with spangles and glitter.


Winter Hats added 12-7-03 Original Author Unknown

Need: Construction paper, paste, crayons, paint, brushes, cotton balls

Directions: Draw a stocking cap shape for each child on a piece of construction paper. A half circle with a cuff across the bottom and a tassel at the top is simple to do. Cut out shapes. Have the children decorate their cap shapes with crayons or paint or by pasting on scraps of colored paper. Sponge painting. Let them each paste a cotton ball on the tassel area. While the children are working, talk about the changing weather and how hats help keep heads and ears warm. The children may make mittens to match caps.
