Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You'll Need
One Red (or color of your choice) can koozie or cylinder holder
One piece of red foam
One piece of sticky back white foam
Something with a circular base slightly larger than your koozie or cylinder
Step 2: Cut "Stripes"
Cut the white sticky back foam the long way into approximately 1 inch strips. You only need two for each hat.
Step 3: Make the Base
Using your pen and circle object, trace the circle onto the red foam.
Step 4: Cut Out Circle
Cut out the circle you just traced.
Step 5: Apply White Stripes to "Hat"
Trim the white stripes to the right length to go around your cylinder/koozie.
Peel the backing off the sticky side and apply to your cylinder/koozie.
It doesn't have to be perfect - wonky is actually more "Cat In The Hat"-like.
I put mine so the seams were in about the same place on the back side of the pencil/pen holder.
If desired, secure the ends with foam glue.
Step 6: Apply the Base
Apply a liberal coating of foam glue to the bottom of your cylinder/koozie.
Center the circle you cut out on the cylinder and glue down.
Let dry, then fill with pens, colored pencils, markers, etc...
