Friday Book Projects: Miss Fannie's Hat

It is time for Friday Book Projects with Sandy at Just For Fun. This week, we read Miss Fannie's Hat by Jan Karon. It has a nice message at the end about sharing and giving.

So we decided to make hats. We did the classic pirate hat and decorated it.

Just in case you forgot how to make one I will give the instructions. Hey, I forgot and had to find the instructions. Take a whole sheet of newspaper and cut off 4 inches off the side of the paper. Fold the two ends til they met. Take the bottom part and fold up on both sides. Then tape the folds secure.

I let the kids decorate their hats on their own. So, of course I got a lot of drops of glitter glue on the hat. I was able to convince them to put buttons and pieces of paper.

Here is Adela's hat.

Here is Michaela's hat.



Here are Adela and Michaela modeling their hats.

How fun, I think this is one of those things most people remember from childhood that I've never actually done!

What a great idea! We just read and reviewed Sandra Boynton's "Blue Hat, Green Hat" (our review is here), so maybe I'll try making the hats too.
