I’m not a fan of our elementary school’s Test Kickoff Week.
We have Crazy Sock Day, Team Shirt Day, Crazy Hat Day and Crazy Hair Day.
Socks and hair I can handle.
But when it comes to team shirts and hats? My options are these:
Buy them or feel like a mean, ol’ party pooper.
We don’t already have team shirts or jerseys. And they tend to be more expensive than regular T-shirts. So today, the kids went to school in their regular school shirts. I promised we would go buy hats for tomorrow.
Anybody have any ideas where “crazy” hats are concerned? Especially for a little boy? Help!

I remember for crazy hat day we had a goofy hat that Colt wore one time. Now he wears a purple hat (school colors) that we found at party city. I would look for something bright and big.
Maybe a cowboy hat decorated crazy for the E man? I know you MUST have a cowboy hat somewhere in your house since you’re from Texas. (Is that a law?)
We have spray-painted a gimme ball cap — shiny gold or silver — for crazy hat day.
I like the cowboy hat idea.
But I relate to this post because I HATE a similar week at our day care. It’s too much to keep up with. At ours, they have different thinks for pre-K and toddlers, so I have to keep up with 10 different weird little things in one week. It’s maddening. Course, the kids do seem to love it. Grrr.
I’m really glad my daycare doesn’t do this sort of thing — at least not yet!
I thought it was just hat day, not crazy hat day. I could be wrong though 😦
For the jersey day, Bridgette wore one of her daddy’s bronco’s jerseys and i modified it by cinching it up in the back with a hair scrunchie!!!! 🙂
if only my brain wasn’t mush right now .. I’m sure I could come up with a good idea …. maybe a hat with the top cut out and then a clown wig underneath? see, i told you my brain was mush!
