Crazy Hat Days are traditionally a test of creativity. While nearly any hat could fit the bill for a day of this nature, selecting a hat that is more meaningful and different from the other pre-made caps that others may don is a great way to set yourself apart. As you prepare your cranium accessory for the special day, consider some less common hat decoration possibilities.
Represent your state pride by creating a state hat for your Crazy Hat Day. To craft this hat, begin with a cap representative of a local team or group. Place a platform upon which to build your hat creation atop the cap by cutting a hole approximately the size of your head crown into a sheet of cardboard or foam board, and slipping onto the top of the hat. Attach this platform with glue or by stitching it into place. Cover the platform with things that represent your state. For example, if you are from Ohio you could fill the hat with a collection of buckeyes, a cardinal and a large heart, representing the state's status as "The Heart of it All."
Show your future job goals in your hat selection by creating a job hat. To craft this crazy hat, purchase a standard party hat. Attach objects to the hat that are representative of the job that you wish to hold. For example, if you want to be a doctor, you could wrap a toy stethoscope around the hat and glue it into place, attach a thermometer or place the logo for the American Medical Association prominently on the hat.
When selecting your base hat, consider colours that depict the job you wish to feature. For example, if you want to create a hat with a construction theme, consider starting with a yellow hat, as this colour is often used in the construction trade.
Use Crazy Hat Day as an opportunity to show what your thinking cap might look like by creating a clever homage to this commonly referenced headgear piece. Begin with a stocking cap and attach objects that you often use in school, either by gluing them to the hat top or stitching them into place. Include intelligence building objects, such as a calculator, pencil, thin book or an ABC chart. To make the rationale for your design immediately obvious to viewers, label your hat as "Thinking Cap" by placing a sign on the front or back of your creation.
