Updated on Feb 29, 2012

There are some craft projects so complicated that you wonder how even adults can complete them. This isn’t one of those crafts. Instead, it’s a preschool classic that's great for passing the time on a rainy afternoon, and it won't stress out parents looking for an easy activity to pass the time.

What You Need:

  • A paper bowl
  • A hole punch
  • 2 ribbons
  • Paint
  • Glue
  • Dried pasta, feathers, and buttons
  • Streamers
  • A stapler

What You Do:

  1. Turn the bowl upside down and paint the exterior. Let dry.
  2. Help your child glue pasta, buttons, feathers, etc. on the top and sides of the bowl.
  3. Punch a hole on each side of the bowl, directly opposite each other.
  4. Tie a ribbon to each hole.
  5. Staple strips of streamers to the back of the hat.
  6. Tie the ribbons under your child’s chin to hold the hat in place on his head. Instant fun!
