“All About Me” Hats
All you need are a few funky hats, old fabric scraps, trinkets, and glue to create a fun, getting-to-know-you activity the whole class will be mad (hatter!) about.
1 Gather a variety of hats (kids can bring in their own), as well as scraps of fabric and ribbon, stickers, small trinkets and toys, and magazine and newspaper clippings.
2 Have students choose a hat and then decorate it in a way that reflects them, using school glue or a glue stick to affix items.
3 Have them spell out their names with cutout letters or stickers, then wear them at a getting-to-know-you class hat party!
