My son goes to Abracadabra summer camp this week and today being the last day, they have dress up. We already had magic cape (he is obsessed with magicians), I made a cape out of a throw fabric for baby to lie on and play. The fabric is very color full, has sun and moon, and stars on it.
So thinking of surprising him with a wizard hat (wishful thinking!!!), I bought a plane black thick paper and a pink one for a fairy hat for my daughter. Yesterday we started making the wizard hats together! I did most of it and at the same time tried to save my tape and stickers from them
So, it goes something like this if I remember correctly. I cut a triangle as best as I could with two little ones hanging around!! Then I made a cone out of it leaving enough space to glue the pieces and wide enough to fit their heads (again as best as I could)
I only have the picture on cut paper and then the finished one. Why? Because they didn’t even give me a chance to glue the pieces together properly, I had to tape over the glue for the pieces to stick. They were impatient to put it on. When the Wizard hat was finished, first, my son was very happy and playing with it then he got upset (while I’m still working on the Fairy hat ….). Why he was upset? It’s obvious the hat was not good, it didn’t work, it couldn’t do any MAGIC. He couldn’t disappeared his rabbit and then reappear it with this hat!!!! No matter what I said he wasn’t listening to me and at the exact moment that I was going to lose it with him, my daughter started crying that hers doesn’t have butterfly stickers!!!
I really can’t recall what I did at that moment, probably started laughing, what I always do when I can’t talk sense into them. Well until now, I have no idea where is the wizard hat and summer camp is in a few hours. But I took out some butterfly stickers and finished the fairy hat as the way my fairy wished for 🙂 Here is the picture of the fairy hat after she calmed down with the wand we made quickly.
Oh to finish it up and help them keep the hat on their little heads I taped an elastic band at the opening of the hat.
After yesterday I don’t think I’ll do any craft of this sort for a while, they were happy less than the time they spent nagging and crying and making my head to throb.
