Head this way for loads more fun kids activities

  • measure a strip of pale green paper around your child’s head and then tape the paper together to form a simple paper crown. 
  • cut out a rectangle and a square from the dark green paper – this will be the hat shape.
  • cut out a thin rectangle from the black paper – this will be the ribbon/strap on the hat.
  • glue the green rectangle and square together in a hat shape and glue them onto the hat.
  • glue on the black strap decoration.
  • draw a buckle embellishment with glue onto the front of the black strap decoration then sprinkle over the gold glitter.
