Birthday Party Hat in Sign Language

Learn how to sign hat. This one is a very special hat – the kind you wear at a party!

1. Make a c-shape with one hand and tap it on top of your head a couple of times.
2. This sign is a variation of hat – it shows the bottom of a cone shaped hat such as a child would wear at a birthday party. Use that visual to help you
remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Art games for kids are a great addition to any birthday party. Rather than providing pre-decorated party hats, get some blank ones and supply creative
    crafting supplies so that children can decorate their own. Encourage them to sign party hat as they create.
  • Make a Hopkins party hat! Buy a set of plain green party hats and large googly eyes to attach. Draw Hopkins’ big smile on the hat with black marker.
    Then hop around and enjoy the party!
