UPDATE: This flannel recently got a makeover!
This is a great flannel or prop game for talking with the kids and building their background knowledge! First, we take the hats out and talk about them. What color is this hat? Who wears it? Then I hide a cat or a bat inside the hat and we play a guessing game! This is a fun activity that can easily be used with a variety of themes: rhyming, pets, cats, hats, clothes, etc.
Here’s the flannel version:
And here are some fun rhymes you can use:
My Friend Cat
My friend cat
Is hiding under a hat!
Is my friend cat
Underneath the cowboy’s hat?
(repeat with other hat types or colors)
Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat
Kitty cat, kitty cat, where could you be?
Is that you under the black hat I see?
