So anyone who knows me, knows that I am a preparation fanatic. I start planning my kid's birthday parties a year before they actually happen. This is not a constant search and work on it everyday. I keep notes about the things that I want to do and purchase things when they are seasonal or go on sale. This has helped me accomplish quite awesome parties for a fraction of what they would cost me normally.
For this project I purchased Easter/Spring hats at the dollar store from the seasonal area.
They had some not so pretty flowers and bands on them, I removed all of those. This was not the easiest task and left some hot glue behind (that's okay because it will all be covered up).
I slowly over the rest of the year collected sequins, beads, ribbons, etc. to decorate the hats with.
I think this will be a really fun activity for the girls to do. I have seen some of the things that Austin has come up with and she will have quite the time playing with all of the supplies. This is something that I will have the mothers help their daughters with. I love having Moms and Daughters playing together.
