    Default Easter Hat Parade

    Pretty sure my DS new school does an Easter Hat Parade. I am not creative at all and definitely not crafty...so I figure I might be able to steal, I mean borrow, someone elses ideas and mash them into an Easter Hat Monster!!!

    So, tell me your brilliant ideas. Or show me...a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Yep I just get a cheap hat the ones you buy at the dollar stores and the glue stuff on. Like eggs, mini chicken, glitter and all that.

    Do they make them at school? I use to buy cheap crap at the cheapy shops and, combined with my craft cupboard, make hats with the kids. We would decorate giant paper hats I would spend ages folding the night before. We would do our Easter hat parade the next day. Kids could wear their hats from class or ones made at home.

    No idea if they make them at school or at home. I want to be prepared in case I get a letter a week before saying we need to make it at home haha

    When my SD was at prep, I picked her up the day before the Easter parade and was just lucky her teacher told me about it otherwise she wouldn't have had one!

    We made an Easter crown - I printed off some Easter egg shape colour me ins (about 6cm high) then we decorated with lots of paint, glitter and beads. I stapled them to just a ring of cardboard that sat on her head and added extra ribbons. Sprayed her hair with glitter hair spray and voila - awesome Easter hat parade.

    OMG I was about to ask the same question. At DS's school parents have the wonderful opportunity to make the hats, so I just bought a hat and stapled eggs around the brim and stickers and chickens on top.

    I hope I get some better ideas this year, poor DS!

    I can't wait for DD to go to kindy/ school and have Easter Bonnet Parades!!!
    My mum used to help me make one every year, she is super craft and I'd often win.
    I had a bunny mask one year, made from cardboard with cotton balls glued on.
    A basket that tied onto my head with a ribbon. The basket was filled with straw, fake yellow chicks and chocolate Easter eggs.
    A hat decorated with hollowed and painted chicken eggs.

    They make them themselves at my girls school for the Kindergarten to Year 2 kids. We have to send them with a hat made out of cardboard and some decorations. But yay! First time in years that I don't have to make two for my twins as they are in year 3 this year. (They will either have to do a mask or decorate an egg/eggs) The kids have buddies from the older classes to help them decorate them.
