Making floppy hats for Diez y Seis celebrations @WBCL

Diez y Seis hats
 This was a great project and a nice way to learn a little history too. We talked about Mexican independence day and the 202nd anniversary then launched into the project.
All it takes is a 24" x 24" piece of wrapping paper, a plastic bowl, some tape, some yarn and a tissue papper flower-which we also made. It was way too hard to form the hats on the kids' heads so a bowl is the perfect form. Some of them actually incorporated the bowl permanently into the hat. The paper is scrunched over the bowl to create a crown for the hat and taped to keep the tucks in place. We then added yarn to serve as the hatband and taped it in place. Some at this point sewed the bowl to the hat with the yarn. Last we made tissue flowers and added those. Great fashion show.
