Each Monday night our family gets together to sing, share a lesson and do a simple activity. It was my turn to present the activity this past week, so I decided we should make paper hats. My mother-in-law recently sent a fun activity book written in the 1970's where I found the instructions for this simple old-style military/baker/scout hat.
With several sheets of recycled newspaper, some instructions and enthusiastic art direction from the kids, everyone was outfitted in about 15 minutes and play continued through eating treats until bedtime. Through experiences like this simple activity, I remember that our families are happiest by working and being together--regardless of the amount of money spent or the size of the activity.
