Hooray! It's Hat Day!

Okay...there are simply too many nifty ways to make hats out there but since I'm only one person with limited time, I bring to you Bolwers-a-la-dilly-do!

You will need:
*paper bowls
*paint, markers or crayons
*happy gluable things
*splat mat
*hole punch & yarn (optional)

Gather yer supplies and set them out in a mess friendly area. I dumped all my supplies into a muffin tin for easier access. My assistant today is (almost) 2 1/2 year old Bea and she likes to have things ready.Give yer a kidlet a paper bowl, flip it upside down and let them go at it....and go at it...and go at it...You may need to set it aside to dry and if that is the case, grab some more paper and don't let yer supplies go to waste.Once dry, put hat on top of head and take as many photos as possible before your assistant decides she would rather wear a plain blow on her head. Punch holes and attach yarn straps if you wish. Have fun!


  1. What a fun day! The poor kidlet never took a nap but I'm sure she'll conk out early. She's always has a blast with Aunt Jessica.

  2. i always have fun with you two as well! we never got back to talking about her ballet classes...darn!
