How To Make St Patricks Day Hats
Measure each child’s head. (Our 3 & 5 year olds heads were about 20-21″ for reference).
Cut 4″ wide strips of your construction paper or bristol board for the band. Staple them together where necessary. Measure again before you add the final staple or by trying it on the child’s head – Sizes can be adjusted to the right size on the last piece by sliding them by each other.
Trace or cut out your 4″ shamrock clover on to green paper.
Add 1 piece of black tissue paper on the inside of your band. Tape the 4 corners to opposite sides of the hat – bottom of the band, then tuck in the remaining 4 corners and tape to the top of the band. Fluff as necessary!
Glue shamrock to the front of the band.
Let children decorate with St Patrick Day stickers or dots.
