We’re busy getting ready for Vivi’s birthday. What better way to ring in Year 3 than with a pancake party?
Since the kids will be cooking in “Viv’s Diner” I figured they should be properly dressed. You know, in case the Health Department shows up. (And if you’ve ever worked in a restaurant you know they always show up when you’re breaking the rules.) These recycled plastic bag chefs’ hats will be the perfect touch. And might even keep us out of a $500 fine…
We’ll probably wear these over and over in the kitchen. In fact, I KNOW we will because we made them when Pearl turned 3 and we threw HER a pancake birthday! They make awesome party favors and damn– are they cute or what?!
Plastic Bag Chef’s Hats
What You’ll Need:
White plastic grocery bags
Washi tape (AKA craft tape)
What to Do:
Cut strips of poster board lengthwise (I got five per piece and I’ll need to make about 15)
Measure head (my child’s was 19 1/2 inches). Staple poster strips into rings.
Cut handles off plastic bags.
Staple plastic bags to inside of ring. Try to keep staples somewhat even.
Cover staples with washi tape.
Now hurry up and start flippin’, table 3 needs another short stack!
