Here's how you make it...

1. Cut a large piece of brown package paper and place it over the child's head. Have the child hold it on top. Wrap masking tape around the child's head - to make the band of the hat. Remove it from their head.

2. To shape your fireman hat, fold the sides of the hat underneath. Fold them close to the band. Tape underneath to secure. You can also use scissors to trim a lot of excess before you fold it under.

3. To make the front and back of the hat, fold the paper under like you did for the sides. Remember, the front of a fireman hat is smaller than the back. Tape it underneath to secure.

4. Now paint your entire hat. When it is dry stick on one of the printable badges!
