George Washington Powdered Wig

George Washington Powdered Wig

Dress-up like the birthday boy himself – our very first president George Washington – with this fun and educational project for Presidents Day.

Materials:

  • Approximately half a bag of cotton balls per wig
  • Paper painter’s cap
  • Black ribbon
  • White craft glue
  • Safety scissors
     

Steps:

  1. Give the painter’s hat a little more shape by stuffing some rags or towels inside it to make it stand as though it will when placed on your child’s head.
     
  2. Glue cotton balls directly to the hat as if they were the curls of a wig. Cover the entire hat.
     
  3. Cut enough of the ribbon to tie a small bow. Glue the bow to the cotton balls as if a ponytail that would hang over the nape of the neck.
     
  4. Let your child wear and feel like a true American patriot.
