Celebrate Make A Hat Day With These DIYs For Kids
Practical Hats Made Easy
Make a Hat Day has always been celebrated in school. Although the originator is unknown, this is one way of teaching kids how to make a hat at the same time learn the value of the object. I could still vividly remember how I made a detailed three tiered cake hat for my little girl. It took me days I tell you, but the look on her face when she wore it was worth it. Kids can’t contain their excitement when they love something!
So, without much ado, let’s get started with these Make a Hat Day DIY ideas.
