This activity is for all ages! This is a virtual activity and requires you to provide your own supplies. Houston families will join a zoom call with a Generation SERVE Activity Lead to learn how to make these homemade cardboard cowboy hats for our nonprofit partner.

Families who sign up for this activity will receive a separate email with a Zoom link to the online introduction and discussion with a Generation SERVE Activity Lead. You can complete the project on your own time after the Zoom meet up.

Activity Description

With this activity, we will support the educational work of The Black Cowboy Museum and its founder, the legendary Cowboy Larry.

You will work with your family to make cardboard cowboy hats for The Black Cowboy Museum. Each hat will be given to children who visit the museum or given by Cowboy Larry when he visits children's homes, hospitals, foster homes, or other places where children are in need. You can help a young person feel special, despite their family's current situation, living conditions, or financial status. 

Online Directions

You will need to provide the supplies for this activity. Rember, you can complete this activity on your own after the virtual session.

Bring your completed hat to our storage unit when you are done or drop it by the Black Cowboy Museum!
