Make a Washington-Style Yarn Wig
George Washington is famous for wearing a white wig, as was the style of his time. But despite this persistent image of our first president, the truth is he never did wear a wig. Washington's famous 'do was actually his own hair, elaborately styled and powdered white. This Independence Day, or for a fun game of dress-up, your child can develop his own signature look by creating a silly wig from yarn and a stocking cap (no powder necessary!). The yarn wig makes a great prop for skits, creative play, and general goofiness.
What You Need:
- Knit cap with a loose gauge
- 1 skein (coil) of yarn
- Crochet needle
