Cat-in-The-Hat Hat Craft

Sherri Osborn
Make this simple hat that you can wear while you read The Cat in The Hat or wear it to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Cut a red piece of construction paper into strips that are approximately 2" x 8 1/2". Cut a 2-inch strip from the poster board that is long enough to fit around your head. Also cut a hat shape out of the poster board.

Glue the red strips onto the hat shape. Try to keep them evenly spaced. Let the glue dry.

Staple or glue the center bottom of the hat onto the center of the poster board strip. Once the hat is attached to the band, staple or tape the ends of the band strip together to snuggly fit around your fore head.
