Materials Needed:

  • 1 Paper plate
  • 1 Paper cup
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Puff balls
  • Glue


1. Decorate your cups with the piper cleaners by twisting them around the bottom of each cup (I recommend getting colorful cups with matching plates.)

2. Glue the rim on the cup to the paper plate. 

3. Let the glue dry!

4. Now decorate your paper plate with the puff balls by gluing them around the edge of the plate.

5. Let the glue dry.

6. Your sombreros are ready for display! 

While you are decorating, this would be a good opportunity to practice counting with your little ones. Have them count out how many pipe cleaners and puff balls were used.  You can also have them name the different colors of the items used for building color recognition.
