Easter Bonnets.

Mrs. O' Shea's 4th Class have been very busy making Easter Bonnets. They made their bonnets from recycled materials which were sourced at our local Resource Centre in Castlebar. They proudly displayed their Bonnets to the Junior Classes in a mini Easter Parade!








Making Easter bonnets

We made Easter bonnets this year with Mrs. Ryan, Sandra and our teacher , Mrs. O' Shea. I made a stylish top hat. First of all we went to the resource center in Castlebar. We got card & materials to make the bonnets. We wrapped the card to make it fit our heads. Then we made the top of the hat, the rim of The hat and we stuck It all together. Finally we decorated our Easter Bonnets. It was great fun. We showed our hats to some of the other classes.

Making Easter Bonnets

We had to get cardboard to make the bonnets.We folded it around our heads. Next we stapled it. Then we got a flat piece of cardboard and put that on top of the hats. We stuck it on. Then we had to get material to put around our hats. Some people painted their hats to decorate them. Last but not least we modelled our bonnets. Today we had an Easter Parade. We are very proud of our brill Easter Bonnets!
