Teachers and college students helped children ages 2-5 create and wear hats.

Texas Tech University's Child Development Research Center (CDRC) in the College of Human Sciences participated in Make a Hat Day today (Sept. 15).


Make a Hat Day allows students to design, make and wear a hat while showcasing their personalities. The event is often utilized by preschool, kindergarten and elementary school teachers and students. The CDRC had children, ages 2-5, split up into groups of 7-9 children during small-group time. The kids used materials, including markers, stickers and craft materials, to create their hats and were helped by CRDC teachers and college students. After making the hats, the kids were allowed to wear the hats on the playground.
