Dr. Seuss day is coming up on March 2nd, and to celebrate we made our very own red and striped hat just like the one that sits on top of the famous Cat in the Hat. Come grab our free printable hat pattern so your kids can make one too with our newest book inspired activity and don’t forget to check out some of our favorite Dr. Seuss activities like our Horton Handprint Craft, The Lorax, One Fish Two Fish, and more!
My daughter had so much fun making and wearing her hat craft. I hope you have a Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Option: Instead of using craft paper, you can have your child draw the lines on their hat and use markers or paint to color the red stripes.
1. Print out the template. Cut out red stripes and glue them onto the template. Cut out the template in the shape of the hat.
2. Trace the brim of the hat on white craft paper, cut it out, and glue it onto the bottom of the hat.
3. Cut out long pieces of white paper and make a head band that will fit around your child’s head. Tape the head band together at the appropriate size, then attach the hat to the head band.
