Preschool Party Hat Craft

We had so much fun during our preschol birthday party. After playing with the birthday sensory bin, we made a party hat craft.

Supplies:

Glitter Craft Foam cut in large triangles
Craft Foam self-adhesive stickers
Education Cube

The great thing about Education Cubes is that you can customize them. I printed out the blank inserts  and then placed the foam stickers on the insert. My goal was to work on shape recognition and size discrimination. So we had two cubes with inserts that contained two sizes for each shape.

Each student was given a small handful of the shape stickers. One student would roll the cube (we had two but only rolled one at a time), and whatever shape was on the top, that was the shape the student had to place on their hat.

They were so proud of their party-hat creations!  The kids enjoyed playing this game and having a project to take home at the end.

Speaking of Education Cubes, Jenn created a custom insert just for my party! This is available only to Education Cube members. It’s only $12 to join—no yearly fee! I’m also doing a giveaway for 2 memberships, so be sure to enter. :)
