Not So Lazy Days: Hats bring out the crazy
Arts & Crafts
We went for a simple, freestyle project today in crazy hats.
- basic hats (we used baseball hats on sale for $1.69 at Michaels, but you can use any style you'd like. Some craft stores have more options than others)
- fabric paint (we used some left over from past projects)
- scrap crafting supplies (we had pipe cleaners left over from last week and foam stickers)
First, prepare the area by putting down newspaper. You may even want to take this craft outside.
Next, present the kids with their options for decorating and let them have at it!
The boys' favorite option was the paint (which did spill-- the yellow was the "accident"). The little one at first attempted to make his hat into a spider with the pipe cleaners, but struggled with making his idea work.
About the Not So Lazy Days series
I've challenged myself to find a new activity to do five days a week every week of the kids' summer vacation. Activities will fall under one of three categories: Arts & Crafts, Sports & Games or Field Trips. Follow me on Twitter @readallaboutsam for immediate updates on posts!

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" can be called amazing for many reasons, including its effects on the box office, but some don't seem to understand why.
Between Peter Pan (and the cartoon spin-off, Jake and the Neverland Pirates) and The Pirates of the Caribbean movie series, children have plenty of inspiration for role-play or for Halloween costumes.
