Stars 'n' Stripes Hats
Total Time 1 to 2 hours Ages school-age

Your child can show her patriotic spirit this July 4th with a festive star-spangled hat.

What you'll need

  • Paper gift bag
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Paint
  • Star stickers
  • Ribbon

How to make it

  1. To make one, first remove the handles from a white paper gift bag large enough to fit your child's head (we used 10-inch-tall bags). Use a pencil and a ruler to mark vertical lines about 1 inch apart down all sides of the bag and across the bottom, then paint or color every other stripe red. (For painting, open the bag and place it over a small bucket or similar object.)

  2. When the paint has dried, fold over the open end of the bag a few times for a hat brim, then paint or color the brim blue. Allow the paint to dry.

  3. Add a few silver star stickers to the brim, and the hat is ready to wear. (If the hat is too roomy, wrap a ribbon around it at the base, behind the brim, and cinch it snug.)
