Turkey Paper plate hat

This Friday, Baby Chuck (wait, should I call him Toddler Chuck since he's now older than one? Hmm...)

Back to what I was saying... this Friday our local library is holding a special Thanksgiving party for the babies and toddlers.  Last month they put together such a nice Halloween party, so we're really looking forward to seeing what surprises are in store.

I wanted to help contribute to the festivities.  After finding this great paper plate hat tutorial from Alphamom, I made a whole flock of turkey paper plate hats for the kids.

Note:  This was like the only good photo that we got of Baby Chuck wearing the hat.  It's a miracle that he sat still and din't rip it off.


Materials:
- paper plates
- scissors
- pencil
- paint
- paint brushes
- construction paper

Directions:
(These were super easy to make, so here are just some photos of the process.)


 







I just tried a hat on Baby Chuck this morning and it just barely fit.  Eeek.  Guess what I'll be doing tonight.... Yup... trimming off a little extra from the brims so the children can wear them comfortably.

Gobble gobble!
