Purple One-Eyed Monster Hat

Sometimes I forget to bring cloth bags to the grocery store, and I end up with a bunch of paper grocery bags. What to do?! Let's recycle them into a stylish purple one-eyed monster hat! Your child will certainly be the talk of the town, when sporting this new look for fall!

  • 1 paper grocery bag
  • 1 purple piece of construction paper
  • 1 white piece of construction paper
  • 1 black piece of construction paper
  • 1 red piece of construction paper
  • 1 handful of feathers
  • 1 handful of Easter grass
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Messy mat

  1. Lay the grocery bag flat with the bottom of the bag facing down.
  2. Glue purple construction paper on front of bag.
  3. Cut out:
    • 1 big white circle for eye
    • 1 big black circle for pupil
    • 1 red half circle for smile
    • 2 small white triangles for teeth
  4. Glue on monster eye, smile, and teeth.
  5. Glue on Easter grass and feathers.
  6. Let dry.
  7. Roll bottom of paper bag to form into a hat and adjust to child’s head size.
  8. Get ready to ROAR!!!
