Project

New Year's Hats

Introduction

Children go crazy for New Year's Eve -- when else do they get to stay up so late? But while the grownups will happily sip Champagne and chat, the junior set might need some help killing time before the big ball drop. 

Materials

  • Plain plastic top hats
  • Craft supplies
  • Child-safe scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Double-sided tape

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Create a make-your-own-hat station by setting out plain plastic top hats, along with a selection of basic crafts supplies (streamers, stickers, pom-poms). Have child-safe scissors, craft glue, and double-sided tape on hand for assembly, and let the little ones go to town. They'll love modeling their creations as much as making them.

    You can get hold of all these items from most craft shops. We have a craft store in the city centre and the kids love to go there as it’s packed to the ceiling with everything you’d need for a project. The bigger stores have a lot more products obviously – our regular one isn’t too big but still manages to cram a huge range of items in the space they do have.

    They also have hundreds of different kinds of plastic hats in stock, including the top hats
    that are required for this particular craft so ill be off shopping today.
