Crazy Hats

Here is a fun use of those really large coffee filters known as Texas Snowflakes.  We purchase ours from the Discount School Supply catalog. 

We had actually used these earlier in the year on the easel with spray bottles of liquid water color.  Check out this post on a science experiment we did we them and some markers. 
The children loved it so much that they each made several, so we saved at least one from each child.  I had thought that we would actually make really big snowflakes when we received our first big dumping of snow this winter, but alas, that never happened.  So they were saved.

During our last week of school we brought them back out and turned them into Crazy Hats!

You put the coffee filter on the child’s head and tape around the crown of his head with masking tape creating a hat.

  Then we put out a fun collection of glue-able items and let them decorate their hats. We had buttons, feathers, pipe cleaners, sequins, pompoms, tissue paper and more.

This is a cool idea for celebrations and summer camps!
