The upside down cup is a great party hat. (Instruction sheet in a previous post). A double page of a newpaper is just the right size for a grownup's head. Of course yoou could make it child size by cutting the paper to size. Since newspaper is practically can experiment and make hats for the whole family...including the pets.

I have suggested to my students that they can have their birthday party (or any kind of party) guests make their own hats, make cups and eat snacks from the cups. Party favors can also be taken home in handmade pouches. Gee, I wonder how many hats, pouches, cups etc can be made from the Sunday paper including the colorful ads. Just think of all that free origami paper.
