- styrofoam cups (the kind with the lip are best)
- paint, markers, crayons , paint pens (whatever you want to use in red)
Have your students decorate their hats to resembles the Cat's hat. (red stripes)
You Take the cups home and bake on 300 for about 5 minutes. The styrofoam will melt down to make a miniature hat. (warning the styrofoam does put off fumes so do this at your own risk and away from kids).
