We love a good spirit week around here—especially if it calls for Crazy Hair Day. Now to be fair, when we’re running late for the bus, my kids’ hair usually looks like it would fit right on Crazy Hair Day. However, for the actual day I got crafty before breakfast and was able to send the kids out the door with super rad hair that they absolutely loved. So they were thrilled and these fun styles took me just a few minutes to whip up. So here’s how I made the delicious donut hair and one eyed monsters.
First up–donuts! Start with a small paper plate and cut a small hole in the middle. You just need the hole to be wide enough to pull a ponytail through. With construction paper made a small circle and again cut the middle out. This will be your “icing.” Using a hot glue gun, attach lots of sprinkles. If you don’t have sprinkles, little pieces of colorful paper will work, too. Hot glue a few bobby pins to the bottom of your “icing.” Pu your child’s hair into a ponytail and pull it through the paper plate. Then put their hair into a bun and attach the “icing.” Boom–done. So easy and so stinking cute!
Now for the one eyed monster. Start by cutting pipe cleaners in half and hot gluing a googly eye on the end. Wrap the bottom of the pop cleaner around a bobby pin and place in your child’s hair. You can twist and turn the pipe cleaners into different directions to make them look extra wacky.
