Craft Features

Developmental Skills

Ages: 2-5

Materials

  • Child-size cap in red, white, or blue (we used blue)
  • Star-spangled wire garland
  • Duct tape (we used red)
  • Self-adhesive foamie stars OR foam/felt sheets in red, white, and blue
  • Fabric glue (OPTIONAL)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Snip the garland into a series of short lengths.

  2. Step 2

    Bundle them and wrap them with the duct tape, covering the tips. Wrap again to make the bundle more cushioned.

  3. Step 3

    Snip a very small hole in the top of the hat. Push the taped part of the “fireworks” through the hole and bend the taped portion so that it lays flat with the top of the hat. Secure with duct tape. Cover with a self-adhesive foamie star or with a layer of felt, glued in place.

  4. Step 4

    Add the self-adhesive foamie stars to the front of the hat. Or draw star shapes on red, white and blue foam/felt sheets, cut them out and glue to the hat.

  5. Step 5

    Celebrate Independence Day!
