My little girl graduated from preschool last night. I wish all graduations could be this simple, a BBQ at our neighbors house with a five minute ceremony to give them certificates. There were six children in our co-op preschool. It was so much fun watching each of them grow throughout the year. I made up some caps for them to wear during the "ceremony."
Cut a square from a cardstock piece of paper. This square is 8.5"
Cut another piece of paper in half.
Staple this piece together. Fold down one long edge about 1 inch.
Cut the folded edge ever .5 to 1 inch.
Circle the band around and staple together. I even stapled the folded edge to help when keeing it glued. I didn't take a picture of the next step, but just put a stripe of glue on the fold and glue to the square.
Repeat until you have enough hats.
I kept on making hats because it was fun to do. Because 4-5 year olds like to play with things I didn't add any tassles on them. You can make a simple pom-pom and attached it with a brad.
We had enough hats for little brothers to wear some too.
