The July 1987 issue of The Friend magazine has a cute pattern to make a great marching band hat. Wouldn't it be fun to make one to use for singing time on the 4th of July? I, or one of the children, could wear it to lead patriotic songs. We could even use rhythm instruments and have a marching band. The nursery kids and junior primary would love doing it, but the older kids don't seem to like to march. Or, I could simply set it on the table and let the children choose songs from inside the hat.
I'm not sure that our kids even know any of the patriotic songs. Are any of you planning to do anything patriotic on the 4th? I would welcome suggestions.
