Materials
Thin card or thick paper for hat headband
Thick cardboard (e.g. from brown corrugated box)
Cotton wool balls

We used hessian material to make a wafer texture. You could also draw on criss crosses onto brown cardboard with a brown pen.

Method
Cut two ice cream shapes out of thick corrugated cardboard.

Glue on 3 cotton wool balls to make the scoops of ice cream.
Colour in the popsicle stick with brown pen. Cut in half to make two chocolate flake sticks. Stick one onto the back of each ice cream or poke into one of the corrugated cardboard channels.

Cut two strips of thin card to make a headband. Each strip should be a few inches longer than the width of the head.

Put both strips together and pinch the two ends. Tape the two edge pieces (top, bottom and sides) to fit the head comfortably.
