Make and Take Craft: Train Engineer Hats

-construction paper

Process: Cut out a template for a train engineer hat. I just googled "train engineer hat" and copied what I saw on a full sheet of construction paper.  Color the hat as desired. Fold the hat at the brim line (where the sides of the hat start in pinch in) staple a long strip on construction paper to each side on the back and wear like a visor!

Time: Prep took about 10 minutes and the craft took about 15.
