Like many toddlers, my daughter loves to play dress up. She has a fantastic imagination & she likes to use it. She will put herself into character & really commit to it. We love to make crafts to encourage her love for role play. We make paper plate masks often & another paper plate favorite of ours is hats. With the fall around the corner, we did a fall-themed scarecrow hat.

Cut skinny strips of construction paper for your straw. Glue them around your hat on the paper plate.

Rip off a couple of pieces of construction paper to make patches for your hat. Draw in simple designs like checks or polka dots.

When it is dry, it is ready for your head or even your stuffed Teddy’s head.
