MAKE A COLORFUL WINTER HAT CRAFT WITH SCRATCH ART

This winter hat craft might just be my favorite winter craft that we have done so far! I love the colorful designs that show through the black paint with the scratch art and the pompoms on the top add in some extra fun.

MATERIALS – White cardstock – Winter hat printable (get it below) – Oil pastels – Black acrylic paint – Paintbrushes – Bamboo skewers or toothpicks – Pompoms – White glue – Scissors

INSTRUCTIONS 1. First, print out your winter hat template.

2. Using oil pastels, have kids color in their hats using a variety of colors in any pattern they like. You can do diagonal stripes, horizontal stripes, a circle pattern, any design will work.

3. Cut out your hat first before painting. Have kids paint on a thin layer of black paint over their oil pastel design.

4. Now the fun part! Using a bamboo skewer (or toothpick) kids can scratch in their designs on their winter hat.
