How to make an Easter hat

1. Start by laying everything out on your kitchen bench or table.

2. Use a thick texta to mark evenly-spaced spots around the brim of the hat. This will help you space out your decorations when you glue them on.

3. On the inside of the hat, mark where to cut your ear holes. Draw a vertical line towards the top of the hat on either side.

4. Cut along the vertical lines to make ear holes. Ask an adult to help with this part as it can be tricky.

5. Pull the bunny ears through the holes. This requires a bit fiddling.

6. Start gluing your decorations on. You might like to alternate between the fluffy chickens and glitter eggs. Or pick a decoration of your own!

7. Continue gluing around the brim of the hat.

8. Hold the decorations down until the glue dries.

9. Get an adult to help staple down the feet of the chicks so they stay on.

10. As soon as the glue is dry, your Easter Hat is ready for action.
