I made this in about 15 minutes before story time on Thursday, I've had a bad procrastinating streak lately. When I get a chance I'll go back and make both a boy and a girl face so that there's a little more diversity in the dressing up- I realized after I had made it that there were 4 pretty stereotypical boy professions and 1 stereotypical girl profession (if you consider a witch a profession) and I'd like to switch it up a bit in the presentation.

I run into fires to save the day, my bright red hat keeps me safe all the way!
Pete's a firefighter!
I ride a broom with a cat on the back, my hat is a triangle, pointy and black.
Pete's a witch!
I cook all day, I cook all night, my hat is big, puffy and white.
Pete's a chef!

Whether I'm catching a ball, or swinging a bat, on my head I've got a....
And that's our hat game.
