How to make a printable hedgehog hat

You will need

  • Pencils, crayons or felt tip pens for colouring
  • Scissors
  • Stapler or glue stick
  • A printout of the hedgehog template.

How to:

  1. Print out the template and colour in. You may want to color the reverse side of the spikes so it has colour on the back as well.
  2. Staple the spikey back to the front keeping the printed spikes on the inside of the hat so they’re visible from the front. Measure it to the head size of your child so it fits exactly before gluing or stapling the final join.
  3. Put the hat on!
