Last Friday, I received a letter from school that there will be an Easter Bonnet competition. My son loves to get involved in each of the school activities and so we decided to make one. I have to be honest that I always love to recycle their crafts as much as possible. I did a bonnet hat for Ms C and won a prize before but I couldn’t find it. So we had to start again.
I did Google for Easter Bonnet Hat and found this quick and easy craft using a paper plate from Crafts Ideas.
For this craft, most of the materials are recycled from an Easter egg hunt or gift.
- Paper plate
- Scissors & Pen knife
- Glue & Stapler
- Double sided tape
- Décor: Ribbon, Paper Chain, Eggs card, Flower cards, Easter theme foam etc
After using a pen knife to slit the paper plate, we decorated it with foam, paper chain for the ribbon and pasted some old Easter egg hunt kits. This is such a simple craft especially as everything is recycled from last year. We didn’t need to buy anything at all!
