It does get messy……..BUT, life with kids is already messy so who cares 🙂

Start by cutting 1/4 off the paper plate. Toss the end. Next bend over the edge that you cut to create a hat rim and hot glue (please handle the hot glue gun :))
Let the kids have fun painting away, decorating their hats in which ever way they want!
When they’re done painting, hot glue the pom-pom right on top of the hat. Let dry a little.
Next, squeeze and spread the kids glue all over the hat and sprinkle the fake snow over, shake off excess and let dry. TOTALLY HELPS TO DO THIS STEP OVER THE TRASH!
What is my child learning?
-Fine motor skills (painting, using scissors, gluing)

-Focus and concentration
