Preschool graduation marks an important milestone in the life of a young child. Make the most of this special occasion by dressing your little graduate in a handmade graduation hat or using graduation hat accessories throughout your celebration. Children can make their own creative graduation hat crafts, adding to their sense of accomplishment.

Autograph Hat

Help preschool graduates make festive graduation caps that can also serve as autographed keepsakes. Have the students make the base of the hat out of a strip of cardboard formed into a circle. Students attach a square piece of cardboard to the base. The square is covered in black construction paper. Give each student a white crayon to have other students autograph the hat or draw a picture. Each graduate will have an original graduation hat to show off.

Miniature Hats

Assist preschool students in making miniature graduation hats. The children cut out one eggcup from an egg holder and glue a square cutout cardboard piece on top as a mortar board. A yarn tassel can be made and attached to the top of the graduation hat. The hats can be painted in the school colours. Students can set the hats upside down and fill them with candy. These miniature graduation hat crafts can be used as favours for the young graduates.

Plate and Bowl

Show preschool students how to make graduation hats with basic serving items like a paper plate and bowl. Use a plate and bowl in the school colours. Set the bowl face down on a table and glue a paper plate to the base of the bowl. The plate serves as the mortar board to the hat. Students can attach a tassel made of yarn to the centre of the plate. Additionally, students can attach yarn or ribbon to the bowl to make a chin strap.

Hat Photo Holder

Help your preschool graduate make a photo holder in the shape of a graduation hat. This craft makes an enjoyable project for young students and provides graduates with a way to display a photo from the graduation ceremony. Students will paint a wooden spool the same colour as the graduation hats each will wear. A small, square piece of foam in the same colour is placed on top of the spool as the mortar board. Glued to the mortar board is a piece of piping that is spiralled to provide a place to insert a photo. Additionally, a tassel can be added to the top by wrapping strings of any colour around the piping.
