Catch Sonic the Hedgehog Movie in Theaters February 14th
Growing up with 2 brothers in the ’90s, I had my fair share of video games. Sonic the Hedgehog was a game character that my family knew well. This fast energy ball of blue fur helped to define my childhood. Who knew that almost 30 years later, we’d finally have a Sonic the Hedgehog movie. One part nostalgia, one part all-new adventure, the ’90s are here again, reshaping a new generation of Sonic the Hedgehog lovers. And I’m not mad about it.
My heart was RACING when I was invited to attend the Sonic the Hedgehog movie premiere in L.A. this past weekend, thanks to Paramount Pictures. It was a dream to meet the amazing cast, walk the “blue carpet,” and see the firsthand results of many years of childhood nostalgia brought to life. (You can check out the fun in my #SonicMovie Instagram Story highlights!) Don’t worry. I will have a full Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Review | Safe for Kids? coming soon. And don’t speed off just yet! Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with Jim Carrey (“Dr. Robotnik”), James Marsden (“Tom Wachowski”), Ben Schwartz (“Sonic”), Director Jeff Fowler and Producer Toby Ascher here on the blog too.
DIY Sonic the Hedgehog Party Hat
While the whole weekend raced by in a blur, I was beyond upset that my family was unable to join me in California.
To bring a little bit of that #SonicMovie magic home, I made this FREE Printable Sonic the Hedgehog Party Hat DIY to celebrate opening weekend this February.
Perfect for a Sonic the Hedgehog birthday party, movie night, or just a fun kids craft idea, this QUICK and easy DIY is a fun way to get the kids excited about their favorite video game character premiering on the big screen! Ready to make yours? Here’s how:
What You Will Need:
- (2) 12″x 18″ Blue Foam Sheets
- (1) Sheet of Beige Cardstock or Beige Drawing Paper
- Hot Glue Gun
- This FREE Printable Sonic the Hedgehog Hat Template
- Cut 2 strips out of the blue foam sheets, about 2 inches wide, 12 inches long. Measure and fit around your child’s head. Glue the ends together. Allow to dry.
- Print out this FREE Printable Sonic the Hedgehog Hat Template. You will need one template of page 1 (with the ears) and 3 templates of page 2 (just the spikes).
- Trace and cut out blue foam pieces using the templates (should have 4 spikes and 2 large triangles).
- Glue two of the foam spikes together from the top, leaving the bottom curved area unglued. Measure and cut two small slits in the bottom of the two glued spikes as shown, to easily fit over the top of the crown of your hat. (You may want to have your child wearing the hat to accurately measure the slit areas.) Press slits down into hat crown. Glue in place if desired.
- Cut out the remaining 2 small triangles from your template. Trace onto your beige cardstock or paper. Glue beige triangles inside of larger blue foam triangle ears.
- With top spike point facing back, glue your ears onto front of the crown of your hat, one on either side of your spike.
- Let’s put those 2 remaining Sonic the Hedgehog spikes! Glue the spikes to the back on your top spike base, going down the back of your hat as shown. Allow everything to fully dry.
And voila! One super fast DIY Sonic the Hedgehog party hat!
