Recycle Spring Hat !!!


Here is our Recycled Spring Hat ... though it has no direct connection with Pakistan Day yet I have a very strong feeling that introducing recyling at this age will eventually help make her a better Pakistani; that this is one GREEN activity ... what do u say??? This is what u need to make this cutie ( Oh no I am not telling you about my cutie...hehe)
1. Old news paper
2. Masking tape
3. Paints ( we used acrylics)
4. Crape paper to make flowers,or you can get sresh flowers, laces , bows and any other old or new stuff u fancy and a very funny kid who cant stand hiding behind paper :)

How To:

Pile up 2 full sheets on top of your kiddo's head in different direction, squeeze it down to form a crown,put masking tape around it. Repeat it for a few times to get a more stable hat. or you can pile up 3-4 sheets all at a time....but for that you need a more patient child that is rare to find these days :)

It would be a lot easier if u get adult help for this stage.
Yup its dark under it so quickly move to next step and put masking tape around the crown a few more times so that its secure enough then start rolling up the sides to make the brim. This is the stage where you can creat a lot of different styles. Then enjoy painting with the lil one. M enjoyed this part best.We chose bright yellow for the base . We need to paint it on both sides esp the brim.

Finally use bows , flowers stickers anything ur kid and u fancy to decorate :)
I made some crape paper flower that M love love loved so she told me where to put them and I just glued them in place. Then she told me to put up some sticker and glitter and Ribbons.... She is going to look so damn cute on her nature walk this evening :)
Do give me a shout if u like it and try with ur lil ones :)
