Cat in the Hat Hats From TP Rolls

We made these in anticipation of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday tomorrow.  Again, we love the Cat in the Hat around our house. 

I have been collecting TP rolls FOREVER, like probably since Halloween.  (I just had this visual picture of our house being over whelmed by TP rolls.  Maybe I haven’t saved every single roll since then, but I have quite a stash.)  As each holiday comes, I just know that I am going to find something fun to make with them.  Well for Dr. Seuss’ birthday I have finally gotten around to using them!

Cat in the Hat Pop Up

{To Make You Will Need}

TP Roll
Red Paper (I thought felt would be cute too)
White Cardstock
Dowel
Scissors
Tape/Glue
Markers/Crayons
Cat in the Hat Pop Up Template (Can be downloaded {HERE})

 

 

 

{To Make}

Cat3Cut a piece of white paper that will wrap around your TP roll.  Cut and glue red paper, or color to make red stripes.  I cut my stripes about 3/4 inch wide. 

 

Cat4,5

Cut out hat brim and hat top from template.  (Can be downloaded {HERE}.)  Only cut on the dotted lines.  Don’t forget to poke a hole for your dowel in the top of the hat.  (Trust me, it’s soo much easier to do it before you get it all attached.)  Tape/glue brim and top of the hat to the TP roll.  Those little tabs you cut should help it fit just right around the TP roll.   

 

Cat6

Tape/glue red and white striped paper around the TP roll.  You should now have your little hat.  (I am hoping to make a few more, just hats for our place settings at dinner our Seuss themed dinner!)

 

Cat7,8

Color and cut out Cat in the Hat pictures from the template.  (Can be downloaded {HERE}.)  Attach back of pictures to a dowel.  Poke dowel through hole in the top of the hat.  Have lots of pop up fun!

  15. Hello Ash,I was perusing the web, looking for great "Dr. Seuss" activities to share with the pediatric therapy professionals we serve, and found your Cat in the hat Pop Ups. They are darling! I was wondering if I could have permission to feature the photo on our Instagram feed.

    (http://instagram.com/pediastaff#).

    As you may know, I am unable to create a clickable link to your post through Instagram but I would obviously credit your blog and put a link to the specific page the post came from along with suggestion that they visit that page on your blog for directions, the download and more pictures in the description if that works...

    Here is the post that has the image I would love to share
