Paper Hats


Play pretend with a fun newspaper hat! They’re easy to make – and are very useful if you’ve forgotten your real hat!

1. Fold a sheet of paper horizontally in the middle.

2. With the folded crease at the top, fold the top corners into the centre of the page, making diagonal creases.

3. Fold up the bottom edge – the top layer only – to cover the edge of your diagonal creases.

4. Turn the paper over and fold the two bottom outside edges part way to the centre of the paper.

5. Check if it fits your wee one’s head, and adjust to fit

6. Fold the bottom edge and put it on their head!

You can both decorate it however you want – flowers, a pirate skull - let your imagination run wild!
