Preschool Storytime Ideas
Chefs and Barbecue Storytime
Make Chef hats! All you need is one sheet of white tissue paper, and a paper “headband” that fits around your head. Tape the tissue along one side to the headband, taking small gathers or tucks to make it fit. Then tape the ends of the headband together (like a tube). Put your hand inside the hat, from the headband end, and gather the top tissue into your fist and fasten with a rubber band (the rubber band will be inside the hat and won’t show). Then, wear your chef’s hat!
