I am super excited! My little boy is turning 4! This year was challenging on creating a birthday theme. Not with coming up with ideas, having my son tell me he wanted a party and what kind. So here is a sneak peak of what is to come. Next week there will be a post including all the construction birthday party idea I came up with.

Birthday Party Pylon or Witches Hat

Supplies:

  • Construction Paper
  • Pen
  • Paper Plate
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue

Instructions:

1. Take a piece of construction paper and place a paper plate on it, then trace a circle.

2. Cut out your circle. Now you have your pylon base.

3. Take a second piece of construction paper and use the plate to trace a curved line at 2 of the corners. Then cut out.

4. Wrap the paper around creating a cone shape.  You should see a “V” shape.

5. I glued on the outside and then used a piece of tape on the inside.

6. Cut lines from the base up to the “V” area.

7. Fold in the pieces and and add glue.
