Santa Hat

Toddler, Pre-K, K

Let your kids make this Santa hat to wear for fun and you can add the beard and they will have plenty of fun pretend time!

Note: You can do this craft WITH your toddler. Mine had a great time putting the cottonballs in the glue, but I spread the glue, and stapled the bands on the hat.

To make this craft you will need:
  • Red construction paper
  • Cotton Balls
  • Glue (Not glue stick!)
  • Stapler
  • Santa hat pattern
Cut a Santa hat out of one piece of red construction paper. Draw a line along the bottom rim, kind of thick--this is where the kids will put the glue and cotton balls. Then, put glue at the pom-pom part of Santa's hat, he will need cotton balls there too.

Now, while the glue dries a bit--or if you are smarter than me have it done before you start--cut out strips from an addition piece of red construction paper. You need to make a band to go around your child's head. Staple the ends of the band to each side of the Santa hat.

Make your child wait a bit before putting it on, or you will have glue and cotton in their hair if they used to much and it runs ;)
