Spring Hats! The cutest kindergarten art project in the world.

Kindergartners begin a sculpture unit by making cylinder and raindrop paper sculptures.  We move into working with Model Magic, and end with a wearable art hat!  I love to teach this at the end of the school year, and I love to see the kindergartners walking around wearing these adorable hats.  
Kindergartners folded the hats by themselves step-by-step out of 18x24" construction paper.  We talked about things that you see in spring and started by adding grass to the bottom of our hats.  I provided paper and instruction on making stems, leaves, and flowers, but I left the execution of the decorations to them.  In total it took us 1.5 hours.  The best is seeing a class filing out for the day with their hats on!
