It’s hard to believe my son just turned two! Seems like just yesterday we brought him home from the hospital. We have a lot on our plates right now, so we opted for a small intimate birthday dinner with the family instead of the big birthday bonanza we had for his 1st birthday. Just because it was a small gathering, that didn’t stop mama from making party hats for everyone! (Don’t mind the messy yogurt face)
Here is a super quick tutorial using various things you may already have at the house.
I printed pictures of different trains on standard 8.5 x 11 white card stock, then cut the image out. I used black card stock as a brace to give the train a little more support, and used hot glue to attach some black elastic to the card stock to complete the hat. If you do not have elastic on hand, you can use strips of construction paper or card stock to make the ‘headband’. I knocked six hats out in roughly 30 minutes, not including cutting time. That took about 30 minutes on its own, the night before while watching TV.
Going along with the theme, I made a few little trains out of some mini foil pans to hold his favorite rice crispy treats! I hope the pictures below suffice for instructions. If you have any questions, just comment below and I’ll try my best to elaborate.
