You do not have to be a master of origami to make paper hats. Even a simple ""newspaper hat"" will make your child happy: Suddenly it looks so different!
Suitable for: 18 months (but this also enjoy children who are older or younger!)
Which Skills are promoted: Fantasy
What do you need: Newsprint (or another large sheet of paper) and Tesafilm
What to do: The simplest hat goes like this: Roll a sheet Paper together to form a ""ice cream cone"", glue the overlapping ends and you have the perfect wizard hat!
But it's also more demanding: Take a sheet of newspaper and fold it in half. Now put the paper in front of you - with the folded side up. The two upper corners (those on the folded side) now bring you to the middle of the paper. This will give you a triangle with two tabs at the bottom. The tabs fold up over the bottom of the triangle. (To do this you have to turn the paper over once to fold the lower flap upwards.) The hat is ready!
Make two hats, one for your child and one for you. And now off in front of the mirror and off you go the fashion show!
