Join the excitement of an Australian national pastime—horseracing! Dress up for the Melbourne Cup with a one-of-a-kind hat.
On the first Tuesday of November, Australians are likely to be found watching the horse race for the Melbourne Cup. While 24 horses compete for a large purse by running 3200 meters (1.9 miles), spectators dress up to enjoy the day. Wearing a hat is a great way to make the spring day even more special. Here’s one way to make a wide-brimmed beauty!
Draw a large circle on thin, light-colored cardboard or heavy paper with Crayola Colored Pencils. Use Crayola Scissors to cut out the shape.
To be sure that the hat fits your head, make a measuring headband. Wrap a strip of cardboard around your head. Secure the ends of the ring with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Place this ring in the middle of your hat circle. Trace the size. Remove the ring. Cut out this small circle. The hat should fit securely on your head.
Decorate the top and underside of your hat using Crayola Markers. Add Crayola Glitter Glue for a festive touch. Air-dry the glue before wearing your hat.
