Cat in the Hat Pin for Read Across America Day

By Teachers.Net News Desk

Made from one jig saw puzzle piece.

  • Spread a thin layer of white glue over all but the “head” of the puzzle piece and press it into a mixture of glitter (I used predominately black glitter with a bit of red and gold mixed in).
  • Hot glue on a tiny bow of red yarn.
  • Cut the hat from white paper. Color with a red, fine tip marker pen.
  • Hot glue a jewelry pin on the back (Jewelry pins are available in the crafts catalogs and in the crafts section of most department stores).

VOILA! A Cat in the Hat pin for Read Across America Day!

Note: Pieces from 1000 piece puzzles are too small, the 250 piece size works well. I haven’t tried it, but I think the 100 piece size would make an awesome pin! If you don’t have enough pieces formed properly to make the 2 legs at the bottom, simply cut out the shape of the legs as I did on the one pictured. (Visit the Read Across America chatboard for more great ideas, and to share yours with teachers around the globe!)
