Newspaper Activities Day 9: Hats


Welcome to Day 9 of our 10-day Newspaper Activities series.  Today’s activity is definitely right up imagination alley as with the use of newspaper you can be anything…a little dutch girl, a cowboy, or a president!  All it takes is a sheet of newspaper.

For today’s activity, I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial, mostly because this was a spur-of-the moment creation.  One day Peanut and I were pretend playing when I mentioned the idea of making hats.  Basically, in the end, she told me what she wanted to be and I folded, cut, stapled and scrunched newspaper to resemble what I best thought would represent that person’s hat.  The result is what you see below.  Who knows…with a little encouragement I don’t doubt some of your children can come up with some pretty spectacular hats of their own.  That said, here’s just a few ideas to get you started.
You could create a cowboy hat…

A stove top hat…

A party hat…
A dutch girl’s hat…
A fashionable hat fit for a lady…
And more.  The imagination is the limit.  Have fun!

    Hey…I remember making newspaper hats when I was a little girl, AND with my children too!!

    If you don’t have newspapers handy (because the news is read online) pick up reams of butcher paper as it works too. Works for HUGE drawing and artwork projects too!!
