So, if you're following you know my daughters class is doing a barnyard theme and the end unit is an actual hoedown. We've already made the barn cut back drop for the picture opportunity. Now it was time to make the silly hats.
The original post says to measure a party hat and trace it out bigger onto a new sheet of paper. I tried that:
It's took small for some reason. once it's measure onto a childs head (something I should have done BEFORE running 100 off!)That's about when I freaked out because I had already run 100 off on the schools copy machine. That's when I got the idea to wrap the paper my own way and measure it on my daughters head. It fit! So, I just cut all the hats out myself. here is a new template on a 9x12 piece of construction paper. To cut costs, we did not use foam. I used construction paper. I also did not make sheep because of the cost of cotton balls
Next, came the "faces"of the animals, which the original site does not give you. Thankfully I can cut out things and "eye" it. So, I did. Because of that, I'm sharing this with you:
Bend at base, curl the tops
The light line is where you fold. The triangle in it, is to help with the bend.
For the mean time we taped them together. Eventually we will glue them or staple it all together.
OTHER ACTIVITIES WE ARE DOING FOR OUR HOEDOWN:
farm animal hats,
barn door back drop.
Salt Dough animals
Lasso the cows (Cow cut outs and hula hoops)
