New to Bounty?
Your child’s Easter hat parade is a rite of passage!
Here’s a round up of the best hats, headbands and hairstyles that you can easily pull together so your little egg can walk in their very own Easter hat parade.
Pull your child’s hair into a pony tail and then twist it into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Cut out some bunny ear shapes from pink and white felt and glue together.
Cut out two white circles and create eyes by colouring black dots into the centre. Cut out a circle of pink felt for the nose. Use white pipe cleaners for whiskers. Use bobby pins to secure all the elements into the bun.
Ta-da! One super-cute bunny.
Batman Bunny Bonnet
Always be yourself unless you can be a Batman bunny? Yes!
Create a brim from black cardboard, making sure it fits your child’s head. Roll a sheet of yellow cardboard into a cylinder shape and secure with tape and then tape it onto the brim.
Draw Batman’s head and mask onto black cardboard, cut out and glue onto yellow cylinder. Add bunny ears, made from black cardboard. Glue cotton wool to the centre of the ears.
Your little superhero will love it!
Easter Jester Crown
Your child will be the life of their own Easter hat backyard parade with this jester crown.
Roll a large sheet of cardboard into a cylinder shape – make sure it fits around your child’s head. Cut evenly space triangles out of the top of your crown so the crown points can dangle down. Glue on some lightweight craft store eggs and you’re done!
Use bobby pins or attach an elastic either side of the crown to go under your child’s chin.
Bunny Party Hat
Simple but oh so effective!
Using a classic party hat (or make your own from cardboard), simply glue on bunny ears, eyes, a triangular-shaped nose and whiskers – all made from cardboard – then draw on your bunny mouth with a marker.
Some-bunny will look adorable!
Straw Hat Eggstravaganza
Sometimes all you need to create a Easter hat with flair is some cute chicken and egg accessories from your local discount store and some florals to pretty it up.
Secure all your bits and bobs to a straw hat with a needle and thread… or use a hot glue. Ooh la la!
Angry Birds Hat
If your tot’s an Angry Bird fan, this is the perfect hat!
Glue yellow feathers around the brim of a hat. Fold yellow cardboard into a cone shape and tape it over the crown of the hat.
Use orange cardboard to make your Angry Bird’s nose and carboard or felt to make the eyes and eyebrows.
Eggscellent Rainbow Headband
Shine bright like a rainbow with this clever headband. Cut down the centre of a 12-pack egg carton and remove the middle egg dividers. Allow your mini to paint the half carton with their choice of rainbow colours.
Leave it to dry, then make a hole in each end and tie a ribbon which then can be secured in a bow under your child’s chin. Gorgeous!
Bunny Ears and Whiskers
So crafty! So clever! So cute!
Fold your paper plate in half and cut a centre section out. For the bunny ears, either follow this template before you begin to cut or just create and tape your bunny ears back on.
For whiskers glue white pipe cleaners onto a wooden stick and add a pink pom pom for the nose.
This dino-crown is sure to be a roaring success!
Using green cardboard, create a headband that can fit around your child’s head. Next, secure a long strip of carboard from the top of the crown to the base of the crown and allow it to fall downwards.
Then, create loads of large diamond shapes to start making the spikes. Fold the diamond shaped in half, so your ‘spike’ points upwards and glue down your strip, from the top of your child’s head to the bottom.
Giant Pom Pom Bonnet
Sometimes when you want to stand out from the crowd… erm, hat parade, you need to go a little extra!
You’ll need tissue paper in a fun assortment of colours. Create the pompm by folding the tissue paper in half, then concertina fold it. Glue or tape the folded end to the side of a large brimmed hat. Gently pull-apart the tissue paper to form the pom pm. Repeat until the hat is covered. Brilliant!
