Supplies: 
  • 1 yellow baseball cap
  • 2 small black bottle lids (from an oil bottle)
  • Yellow index card or cardstock
  • 1 yellow cloth or yellow napkin
  • Baking paper
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
Instructions: 
  1. Tear up the baking paper into small giraffe patches.
  2. Using a glue stick, glue the patches all over the cap.
  3. To create the ears, cut two triangles from the cloth or napkin. Fold each in half. 
  4. Push the triangles through the 'holes' in the baseball cap.  One triangle through each side of the cap. You may find it easier to use the end of a pen to help push it through.
  5. Turn the cap over and pull the corners through slightly.  Turn the cap back around and shape into ears.
  6. Glue the two black bottle tops to the front of the cap for eyes.
  7. Cut two small rectangles from the yellow cloth or cardstock to make the giraffe's horns.
  8. Glue a small circle of baking paper to the top of each horn.
  9. Fold the bottom of the rectangles slightly and glue these folds to the top of the cap. Let dry.
  10. Wear your giraffe animal cap with pride!

Make an elephant cap instead:

  1. Cover two paper plates in aluminium foil.
  2. Cover a cardboard tube (from roll of paper towels) in aluminium foil.
  3. Glue two small black lids inside two larger white lids.
  4. Glue the white lids to the front of a gray cap.
  5. Bend the top of the covered cardboard tube and stick this to the peak of the cap using tape.
  6. Bend the side of the covered paper plates and stick these to the side of the baseball cap using tape.
