Hat Ideas

Cut construction paper in the shape of a hat(s). Give students colored paper punch outs, macaroni, or beans to glue on the hat in the shape of an “H”.

For hat day I read the story Caps For sale. I first of all read the story through and then I gather up lots of hats and let the kids take turns acting out the story. The other kids are the monkeys, and when the cap man throws his cap on the floor all of the other kids do the same and then they pick them up and put them back on their head. The kids love it.

    Read Old Hat, New Hat by Stan and Jan Berenstain. During the parts of the book that say “Too big.” Put a normal sized baseball cap on a toddler’s head. When the book says “Too small.”, put a baby sized baseball cap on your head. For “Too flat.” put a flattened hat on your head. This idea is meant for about the 18 month old range.
