Poppins Book Nook: The Magic Hat by Mem Fox

We read the book The Magic Hat by Mem Fox.  It was a cute little book that was about a magic hat the flew around and whoever it landed on, it turned them into an animal.  When the magician came to town to get his hat, he turned all the animals back into people with his magic wand.

Conner wanted to make an airplane to fly in the wind since it was too windy for a kite. 

Then we set off to make a magicians hat.  He painted some stars and some moons.

I used a big sheet of blue construction paper and taped it together.  Then I cut it to make it flat on the bottom.

Then I cut 1/4 inch slits in the bottom of it.

Out of another big piece of construction paper, I marked the inside of the hat and cut it out.  Then I used tape to attach the two.

Then he glued his stars and moons on his hat.

We used a stick for his wand and he went around trying to turn his animals into people.

Poor Lexie just wanted to sleep!

Bailey was only interested in eating it!

Poor Miss Snickers wanted to use it as a scratching post.

All in all, I think he enjoyed being a magician for the day!
