Easter Bonnet Ideas to Make with The Kids

Growing up every Easter there would be the Easter Hat Parade at school and church. I remember spending time with my mum and her craft supplies trying to create a bonnet in time. Glue everywhere, green tissue paper, yellow, pink and blue cardboard and cotton wool balls. Some chicks and some bunnies, a little fake Easter grass and soon I would be wearing the creation with pride hoping that I may win. But… I don’t think I ever did I really can’t remember, the time spent making them that is what I do remember. It’s a tradition that I loved and I’m looking forward to bring back with my kids so I’ve collected my favourite Easter Hats for Kids to make (with a little help from you).
