MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home: Hats Off to You!


A multicolored hat made of construction paper, streamers, and a rainbow muffin wrapper sits on top of two books.


Hats off to MOCA Educator Kristen! Join us in saying “Thank you!” and “Goodbye!” to Kristen at her last MOCAKIDS Storytime.

You know we love stories at story time, but did you know that we also love HATS? Come dress your head with something fun as we read Brian Won’s Hooray for Hat! and Ayano Imai’s Mr. Brown’s Fantastic Hat. We won’t just be reading about fantastic hats—we will also sing about them, too! Come wearing your favorite hat, and bring some fun materials (Feathers? Beads? A paper bowl?) to make one at the end, too!

Live via Zoom Thursday, October 21st, at 4 P.M. EDT


Please note that this workshop will be recorded via Zoom and made available on Facebook Live for 24 hours.

**October's story times will be held on the 2nd and 3rd Thursdays of the month—Oct 14 & Oct 21—at 4 PM ET. In observance of Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, November story times will be held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.
