What You Need:

  • Black construction paper
  • Purple construction paper
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Large dinner plate
  • Tape
  • Glitter glue
  • Sequins
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

What You Do:

  1. Have your child use a pencil to trace a dinner plate on a sheet of purple constructon paper.
  2. Help her mark the center of the circle with her pencil.
  3. Let her draw a straight line from the circle to the edge of the paper.
  4. Have your child use scissors to cut the circle out as well as the line from the edge of the circle to its center.
  5. Now for the trickiest part. Help her tuck one edge of the circle (along the line that she just cut) into the rest of the circle. Have her play around with circling the paper around. Once she does it right, the paper circle will form a cone-shaped hat.
  6. Have her tape the paper cone in place.
  7. Time to decorate! Let her draw and cut out stars and moons from yellow construction paper.
  8. Have her glue the yellow stars, sequins and glitter to her hat.
  9. Let her put on her wizard hat and rule her imaginary land with magic -- and kindness!
