Newspaper news . . . sad

I have just realized the saddest thing . . . regarding the new size of newspapers.

They are too skinny to make the classic paper hats of yore.

For many years I could entertain small children by helping them create hats (after which we could put on a play or have a parade). With the new slender newspapers, the proportions are wrong.

 Yes, you can trim the paper, but the hats no longer fit human heads.

Have fun with your dogs and cats!

Just realized the same thing when trying to teach my 10 yr old how to make a Bishop's hat, as my grandfather taught me as a child.... He to trim, and tape, and still wouldn't fit... So sad.
