Easter will soon be here and so will the Easter Hat parade at your local school.
If this is shocking, then I might have freaked you out. Breathe it is okay!
I will hand you a lovely cup of virtual coffee or tea depending on your preference, and you can have a little quiet time. This will allow you to process that it will soon be school holidays or the fact that kids will be hyperactive and high on chocolate due to the gifts from The Easter Bunny and a well-meaning family.
If you are like me, you failed badly at creating an Easter Hat for your kids. I ran out of time and purchased an oversized beach hat for each child. They were pink so I thought they would love them. However, as soon as decorations were added to these hats they immediately fell off and due to the size of the hat and the fact it had a very floppy rim the kids could not see very well while the hat was on. If you really must analyse how it went, it might be termed a complete disaster.
Hopefully, you are now feeling rested and relaxed after the virtual cuppa I gave you.
Now for my solution to make it all better for Easter, or the very least making the Easter Hat Parade stress free this year! Yes, it can be easier and your child will have one amazing rockstar of a hat.
White Knight Paints and Bear & Sparrow have teamed up to create to help parents take all the stress out of creating the Easter Hat.
“White Knight Paints has been a leading force in the specialty paint market for many years. When painting bathroom tiles, kitchen cabinets, metal fencing, your front porch or just indulging in a fun upcycling project, White Knight has an easy-to-use product for just about every DIY project, to help our consumers always achieve a professional result” says Brand Manager Dilani Fernando.
Bear and Sparrow is a registered Australian owned, boutique children’s decor business. They are based in Brisbane and have some lovely handmade wooden pieces.
The Easter Hats use White Knight Squirt Spray Paints. They come in 43 different colours and the new formulation has a primer and topcoat all in one. This paint dries quickly and is touch dry in just 10 minutes. This is good for craft projects with kids, you know how keen they are to start using their creations.
All the components for making this fabulous Easter Hat can be purchased at the hardware store and craft store, all for under $40.
It should take about 1 hour to make, so that is not long at all. Check out the video and download the Easter Hat Instructions here.
After your kids use their new groovy Easter Hats in the school parade you can also re-use it as a table decoration for family meals during Easter.

C’mon and hop off and create your own amazing Easter Hat as we did. You can download the Easter Hat Instructions here, and make sure to watch the video above if you get stuck.
I hope you have fun and enjoy this project as much as we did.
A HUGE thank you to White Knight Paints and Bear & Sparrow for sending both my kids a kit each.
Oh, and the hat boxes are so nice and great for storing your finished hat in too. This will ensure that your stylish creation is not damaged.
The kids are super cute and young here, the reason is that this post was created on March 22, 2017. Still a great post and activity.
