Kids Chef Hats

 My family is big on cooking. We just love food, creating and eating it! My kids share this joy, so we thought it would be fun to make them little ‘chef’ hats. It was quick, and I just used supplies I already had around. They loved it; but be warned, they aren’t made to last forever, especially with little ones!

Supplies Needed:
Tissue paper
Scrapbook paper
Kids Chef Hats
Cut 1-2 inch thick strips of scrapbook paper. Measure around their head and tape the ends together, so it’s like a snug headband.
Lay the tissue paper flat, then take each corner and tape it to the inside of the headband.
Take the remaining parts of the tissue paper that are sticking out, and fold them in. Tape them to the inside of the headband so they’re secure.
Fluff the inside so it puffs up like a Chef’s hat.

Notes: Have fun with the colors; let their individuality and spunk show!

  • WOW WOW WOW….I have a post on how to throw a great Chef Party for kids. I am going back and adding this link to it. Why buy from a store when you can make your own? I love them. (Pinned them just now).

    • Thanks again, Sinea! I also linked to your post from here 🙂 We’ve made these hats several times…the kids think they’re great, and it’s so easy to change them to match their moods!

    • Thanks so much, Rita! All linked up, and loving the other links 🙂 Hope you weekend is fantastic!

    • Thanks Tracy! I totally agree – I wasn’t going to pay a few dollars a piece for a simple, generic hat when it was so easy and cheap (frugal) to make some that were more unique and fun 🙂 So glad you stopped by, and have a fantastic rest of the weekend!

  • Oh these are awesome! And I have all the supplies at home too! Really what a great idea! Found you on Two Girls and a Party Linky

    • That’s fantastic! When I first made these, I seriously just grabbed stuff around the house – so common 🙂 It’s so fun to mix and match, too. Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful!

  • What a cute idea! I bet my girls would really enjoy this both the craft and fun of wearing them and cooking. I love your site design…it is so cute.
    Thanks so much for linking up at the Real Family Fun link party! Hope to see you next week.

    • Thanks so much! My little girl thinks it’s great fun to choose her colors and designs, then feel like a ‘real chef’ 🙂

      I’m so glad you like the design – I had Amanda over at design it, and she did fantastic! I’ll let her know your compliment, I’m sure it’ll make her day!

    • Thanks so much for stopping by! Ya, my kids do the whole ‘apron’ like mommy thing. I even had to get them their own ‘spatulas’ and spoons so mine weren’t all used up 🙂
