DIY Party Hat for a Kid-friendly Celebration

| |

Nate has to work on New Year's Eve this year. Kind of a bummer, but with the new baby still so young I doubt we'd be doing anything too wild anyway. I've decided to lounge around at home with the boys and maybe a couple of family friends. We'll make crafts and do kid-friendly stuff to make it a really memorable year for the little ones! First up on the docket? DIY party hats.

What I love most about these DIY party hats is that kids and adults alike can have a blast with them. It was fun watching the children come up with their designs, but I'll admit I had just about as much fun with my creation as they did.

For these DIY party hats, you'll need some artificial greenery/feathers/silk flowers (the kind that is on a pick for potting), markers or paint pens, papier-mâché mini pots and elastic for chin straps.

The kids can poke their chosen feathers and flowers into the top for DIY party hats that reflect their own personal style.

Sidekick's crowning achievement is on the left. I had to help him a little with the leaves, but the glittery balls were all his own doing.

People keep asking if I'm going to keep trying for a girl to do girly things with, but I don't really get it. I've obviously taught my boys a love of pink feathers and sparkly things. What more do I need?

Have you ever made a DIY party hat with your kids?
