So many uses...so little time!
By Third Grade Teacher
I've used this mystery hat in all subject areas both as a game and review for tests. Every time the hat comes out my students are happy "...oh yeah, she's getting out the hat!" So much fun...thanks for a great product.

Suits the purpose I wanted

I use this to put in my classes footy tips so they choose without seeing; also for anytime I want them to secretly select something such as a scenario to mime.
Fabulous Classroom Tool!

There are LOTS of fun activities that you can do with the Mystery Hat! You could use it for sensory explorations, fun money practice, to choose partnerships, for grouping, working on alphabet or sight word activities, vocabulary, probability, revealing new topics with fun tangible objects, teaching predictions, and practicing just about anything else you can dream up! The red "no peeking" flap is a teachers dream! This is a wonderful product!

Well Worth it!

The Mystery Hat to review and it is worth every penny! You won't regret having it around! We have used it at home and in my husband's elementary classroom and all the kids go nuts when he pulls out the Mystery Hat. The uses for it are endless. We have done tactile learning and guessing what the objects are before pulling them out of the hat. We have put money in and made the kids count it when they pull it out. We have used it for rewards, secret games, phonics lessons, and so much more! I definitely recommend this!!! I was honestly a little on the fence about it because of the price but once we received it to review and realized the vastness of possibilities for it is worth it! We would definitely buy another one if something happens to ours! It's very durable though and still looks perfect after use in the classroom!

About Me play therapist
I have only had this for a short time so yet developing ways to incorporate it into therapy with children and families. So far I wrote many open-ended questions on brightly colored paper for children/family members to "magically" pull out of the hat, read, and respond. It is much more fun coming our of a "magic" hat. Kids can also write their own questions. I think this would be a good activity for "Family Meetings" at home as well.
