My children and I love artworks, and its no wonder why we spend more time in activities such as painting, artworks and crafts. One main objective of doing so is to teach them (or learn myself) on how to reuse things available at our home and also coming up with incredible ideas. How great and satisfied one can be to see their imagination coming to life!. Yes, creative activities for kids helps sharpen their imagination generating ideas on how the end product should look like and what can be done to achieve the same. The materials are mostly sourced from inside our home like the remains of our birthday party gifts, last year's party collections, crayons, sketches and so on. My previous post on "How to make a Duck Easter Hat" is one such example of creating a craft from scratch.

And today it was decided I should blog about my daughter's Easter hat and how we started doing it from scratch. The below image shows the hats which we made together - the yellow duck hat made for my son Berry and the pink rabbit hat made for my daughter Cherry.

How to Make a Duck Easter Bonnet Hat


Step 1: Take a large cardboard box for making the base of the hat. We used the box that came with my daughter's birthday gift. Now, mark and cut two circles - a smaller circle would sit exactly on my child's head and a big circle should be extending 3 to 5 inches from the smaller circle. And you have to cut a long rectangle which would bind both the circles and looks like the below image.

Step 2: Now that we have the foundation for our hat, its time to decorate it the way we want. Since my daughter wanted the hat to look like a rabbit, we started to pick colors and looks to would helps us make a rabbit. Another circle was cut and then covered by a yellow tissue paper. For the ears, Cherry selected orange since she wanted the hat to look bright. After some decorations, this whole portion will be glued in the front side of our hat.

Step 3: We covered and glued the whole hat using pink tissue paper. Eyes and whiskers were added to the rabbit using black coloured paper and glued to the front of the hat. To make the hat look unique and interesting my daughter Cherry came up with the idea of adding Easter egg shapes on the body and the tail of the rabbit. Now imagining the pink base as the rabbit's body, we decided to add a tail like look which will be decorated with oval egg shapes and then glued over the tail. The result of all our imagination is the below image.

Note: To give the tail an elevated look, a cardboard stick is glued and made to stand in vertical position (see below image) holding the hat as well as the tail in position. The output was really great and we all liked what we did. Hope you will also like it!
