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)
  • glue
  • 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!
