Construction paper, staples, tape, art supplies.
This year, let your child create his or her own birthday hat! To begin, staple or tape a piece construction paper into the shape of a cone. Then, let your child decorate the hat with glitter glue, ribbons, streamers, pom-poms, foam letters -- whatever your child can dream up. An extra fun touch is to include a big number designating which birthday you and your child are celebrating. This is a fun memento to bring out every year so that your child can see what he or she has done in the past!
