This quick-and-easy printable hat is a way to put a smile on more kids’ faces during Halloween parties. Every year at our school’s Halloween celebration, there are a few kids who don’t have a costume and they always look so miserable when everyone else is dressed up but them. The paper hats used in the primary grades sometimes seem a little too juvenile to older students, so I created this hat with a “Please get this monster out from under me” joke on it as a fun way to get all the students in on the celebration. You can print the hat in color or in black & white, if you’d like to have the students color their own. Just cut out the two strips and tape (or staple) them together. The two pieces put together with a slight overlap will fit most heads. [If not, a piece from another copy of the hat can be used as an extension if necessary]. Since kids get a kick out of the illusion that the monster has landed on their head, they may want to color the strip of the hat in a color that is similar to their own hair color. The full color version comes in six different color variations.
This also works well for teachers who need an easy last-minute costume! ;)
