My kids school hosts their Easter Bonnet Parade every year and I LOVE it! We won last years and my son put the pressure on for us to ‘win’ again. I told him that it’s obviously more about going out there and having fun but wanted to make him a cool hat just the same.
He loves Minions so we decided to run with that!
To make this hat for yourself you will need:
A yellow bucket
A hat (we bought a cheap yellow one at our local $2 shop)
A toilet roll
Black masking tape
Silver spray paint
Two large googley eyes
Black permanent marker and a white paint pen
Decorations – you can do whatever you like, but we decorated with easter grass, chicks and eggs
Cut a length of masking tape and wrap it around the top 1/3 of your bucket
Cut two rounds off your toilet roll to make the glasses and spray them with silver spray paint
Draw on your mouth using the black permanent marker and use the white paint pen for the teeth
Cut a few small lengths of wool (about 3 cmd long) and glue them to the top of the bucket for the Minion’s hair
Glue on your googley eyes and toilet paper glasses (once dried)
Glue your bucket to the hat
Decorate with the grass, chicks and eggs!
I hope you enjoy making your own Minion Easter Bonnet!
