After he finished the four templates, he wasn’t done coloring. I pulled out a coloring book and then went to work assembling the hats. You simply cut around the template, join the edges, tape a little and then tape in some string that will wrap down around the chin. I didn’t want anything too secure so it could come off easily and not be a choking hazard. If he were a little older we probably would have pulled out some other things to glue on like a pom pom on the top or streamer around the bottom, the possibilities are endless. This would be a fun activity at a little kids birthday party and a take home for the kids. Or even make them a little fancier for adults to wear and something to do while counting down before New Years.
I’m pretty excited about how the whole activity went and the response my son gave. When I put it on his head, he was a little thrown off by the string under his chin but once he saw himself in a mirror, he thought it was the coolest thing!
