In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, it is almost Easter. The season of Easter Eggs, Chocolate, Bunnies, Jesus, Easter Egg Hunts, and obviously Easter Bonnet Parades.
Perhaps, I have a greater selective memory of my childhood then I remembered – but this whole Easter Bonnet Parade thing seems a bit new to me. Isn’t it a just bunch of decorated hats – that may or may not have an Easter connection to the said decoration? (I can hear the pitchforks being sharpened)
Well as its the season (and I may have an Easter Bonnet to make tomorrow), here’s Dads Sofa list of Last Minute Easter Bonnet Ideas. (Be warned these may or may not be serious)
Lego Easter Bunny
Glue the bunny to the hat! At least the wearer would get the respect of any Lego loving teachers! Downside.
You’ve just glued a perfectly good piece of Lego to a hat.
(Find the bunny in your local Sainsburys, or the Lego website)
Something about Death.
Instead of a colourful Lego bunny, your Easter Bonnet could be more of a mood scene, and be a diorama showcasing the death of Jesus.

Even though… I’m not sure if Jesus was really that white! Besides, as an idea this could be more “Good Friday” then “Easter”?
Know someone who is going to glue some moss to a hat? Go one better, and fix some grass to the top of your child’s
Really complete the picture by throwing a few of those yellow plastic chicks in amongst the grass.
Similar to the above, but somehow balance and keep an actual chick on top of the Easter Bonnet*.
*I’m kidding! Don’t do this, that’s cruel!
Lets see how the kids really do behave at school!
What would happen if an Easter Bonnet had loads of chocolate attached to it? You could also have a bet with other parents to see how much of the chocolate survives ?
Well, they’re some of my ideas at the top of my head – sadly I’m not sure if my daughter would like most of those. Lets see what we end up making. Have you got any ideas for decorating an Easter Bonnet?
