Introduction: Electrobow Happy Hat

Step 1: Prepare Materials
Get ready and nearby all your elements for your hat.
Step 2: Prepare Your Painting
Get your painting ready. You need to define colors to use. We decided to use light blue and white for our hat.
Step 3: Start Painting
Get your minions and Artist to paint your hat.
Step 4: Cut Your Hat Base
With the help of an adult, cut the base for your hat. You can use more carton or any other material that is hard and resistant.
Step 5: Round Up Your Hat
Give your hat the shape and endings you want. We decided to round up like a cloud.
Step 6: Build Your Hat
First, glue your hat together.
Then, join your hat pieces all together forming the shape you want.
Next, finish painting all your added parts to create a unique object.
Finally, set details to pimp your hat.
We decided to keep a vertical hat center with a round base and paste cotton balls to make it look like clouds.
Step 7: Create Color Silhouettes
Trace the silhouettes of your Engineer, Artist and Minions arms and hands.
Cut them by the line and paste them all together in a same vertical cone structure.
Step 8: Adding Cool Electronics
Use your Circuit Playground to add color to your hat. We decided to create different animations for different occasions.
Step 9: More Detailing...
Add whatever more details you decide your hat should have. We decided to add some color straws to give color to our clouds. Be creative and build a colorful crazy hat.
Remember, the most important thing is to have fun with your family!
Step 10: Watch Our Final Silly Version ;)
