Cat in the Hat Craft

Supplies Needed:

For Each One –

Toilet Paper Tube
Red Spray Paint
White Ribbon
White Felt or Foam
Scissors
Hot Glue & Hot Glue Gun ( I use a warm gun. I’ve been burned too many times with the hot one. Yikes!)
Plastic Shot Glasses – You can find them in the drink aisles.
Crayons

Instructions:

  • Cut 1/2 inch slits all around the bottom of your toilet paper roll.
  • Bend these outward. These help the roll stand and also provide something for the brim to secure to.

  • Spray paint with red paint
  • After they are dry, flip the roll over onto your white fabric, so you can trace a circle from the inside of your roll.

  • Cut this circle out, and cut a larger circle around it. You are making the brim. It should look like the letter O.
  • Pull this over your roll of toilet paper, and secure it with glue to your bent slits.

  • Adhere your white ribbon around the tube, like stripes.
  • Place a shot glass upside down, inside the tube.
  • Place a shot glass right side up, on top of the other glass. It will look like an hourglass.
  • Stick crayons into the plastic cup, and have fun
