Are you doing a St. Patrick’s Day Party? Why not do a craft program so that everyone has a little Leprechaun hat to wear! They can also act as centrepieces for those residents who aren’t fans of hats.
For this activity, you’ll need green plastic cups to form the hat and green paper or cardboard to make the brim. First, use a saucer, small plastic bucket, or other round object as the template for the hat brim. Have the circles already outlined for residents to cut out. If you’re using green paper, try laminating the circles to make the hat more durable. Pre-cut 1cm x 20cm black paper strips for residents to make the band around the hat as well.
Glue the upturned cup in the center of the circle. Cut two small slits in a round gold sticker and thread the black paper strip through to make the golden belt buckle. You can also cut a buckle shape out of gold cardboard and stick it in place. Decorate the hat with small shamrocks cut out of green paper.
