To make these hats, we used:
Red and White construction paper
To prep for this activity, I took large sheets of red paper and cut them lengthwise into 2 inch strips (no, I didn't actually measure them) and cut the middle circles out of the paper plates. Older children could cut their own red strips.
2. Show them how to spread their red strips out on the paper to create a red and white stripe effect. Allow the kids to glue their strips of red to the white paper.
5. If you plan to have your child wear this throughout the day, you may want to hole punch the sides and tie some yarn beneath their chin to help hold the hat in place.
And there you have a super simple hat to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday :)
