Kindergartners were inspired to create African Kufi Hats after reading The Hatseller and the Monkeys, a West African folktale retold and written by Baba Wague Diakite. The book is about a hat peddler, whose colorful hats are ransacked by monkeys while taking a nap. The hat peddler has to do many things to get his hats back from the monkeys and learns an important lesson while doing so! My students loved this book, and believed that there were monkeys on our school roof waiting to get their colorful Kufi hats!

  1. This lesson is great! The kids look so cute in their colorful hats. What size paper did you use?
