The Random Pixels Sunday afternoon arts and crafts class
Newspaper pressrooms used to be noisy, filthy places. The men who worked in them made paper hats out of newspapers to protect their heads from flying ink.
But, no longer. Pressmen now work in glass cubicles and man control panels that look like something you might see at NASA's Mission Control.
Innovation - unfortunately - has turned newspapers and the pressman's paper hat into ancient relics.
But before newspapers disappear altogether, on the next rainy day, why not teach the kids how to make a pressman's hat?
Just follow the directions in the video below and get ready for non-stop fun!
