I have never made hats from newspaper with my high school kids, but we do
make them from paper sacks. I only give them 3 class periods to work on them
and I have lots of "junk" they can add. I always have some that kids don't
take home at the end of the year and I have saved the best ones and store
them on top of the cabinets. When the kids come in and "just don't feel very
creative" that day, I have them wear the hats. Or if they're having an "art
attack" they can wear them. I don't mandate it, just have it available to
them. They LOVE it!
