Jonathan's Derby Hat

Jonathan's school did their annual Derby Parade this week. Our homework last weekend was to make a derby hat as that was the theme for the two year olds. Every year, the weekend before Derby, there is a great art fair, the Cherokee Art Fair. One of things that is really cool is the children's art tent. For $2, the kids can make all sorts of different crafts. Most notably for us, you could make a derby hat out of newspaper. The tent was really crowded so we got it started and brought it home for additional painting Sunday afternoon.




I bought flowers and ribbon to complete the look. I think Bryan would have preferred something more "manly" but I think it turned out pretty well!

What a sweetheart! We make those exact hats for Mother's Day when I used to teach pre-school too. The moms loved it!

i watched the Derby yesterday - it made me sad knowing they had to euthanize the second place winner. :(

A "manly" Derby hat? I don't think such a thing exists. But Jonathan sure looks handsome in his, flowers and all!

That hat is awesome. Jonathan did a great job painting it and I love the added roses.
