I think it's absolutely essential for every preschool have a collection of silly hats.
Top hats . . .
. . . floppy hats . . .
. . . exotic hats . . .
. . . cowboy hats . . .
. . . theatrical hats . . .
. . . clown hats . . .
. . . beach hats . . .
. . . hair hats . . .
. . . hats, hats . . .
. . . and more hats!
And if you have silly hats, you might as well have some silly faces to go with them.
Since I know people will ask where I got these, here's the box.
And if you have silly hats and silly faces, you're going to need some mirrors to see just how silly you are.
I like having two of these. If you hold them in a "V" shape and a child stands
in the open end, they will see multiple reflections of themselves. The narrower
you make the "V," the more they will see. Does that make sense?
Convex mirrors make you appear upside down, which is quite silly . . .
. . . but a long sheet of flexible mirror is the silliest of all.
And that's what you need to throw a silly party.
Did I forget to mention the silly glasses?
I tried the experiment of entirely encircling children in this
6' long piece of flexible mirror, but none of them would
stay in there for more than a second before demanding
to be let out. Thomas said it made him look "long,"
but it was apparently a freaky sensation. I couldn't get
my whole body inside to see what he meant.
At Woodland Park the word "silly" is considered a high compliment.
