These pig hats (inspired by the Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf) had D oinking around my house for days. He started oinking at me as soon as he realized what he had made, and he proudly oinked at everybody he saw that day.

Our fairytale character hats are such a fun way to remember the characters and connect with the story, so be sure to check out the Bear Hat from Goldilocks and the Three Bears as well as the Wolf Hat from Little Red Riding Hood.

This pig hat works on creative skills as well as reading comprehension skills as they connect with the character of the story.
