I Want My Hat Back

I Want My Hat Back

Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back is a perfect book to tell using puppets. This funny story is easily adaptable using your puppet collection. The animals used in the book are:

  • bear
  • fox
  • frog
  • rabbit
  • turtle
  • snake
  • possum
  • deer
  • squirrel

I Want My Hat Back

If you don’t have all those puppets, you can substitute with other forest animals. I used my new forest Outreach bin to hold the puppets while I told the story. I made a red hat, but you can find these party hats at the dollar store if you want a quick, cheap craft! I hot-glued red felt over a cone of posterboard.


I love my hat!
