We have been reading Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina for a few months, and the kids really enjoy it. They laugh at the monkeys every time we read it! Below you will find Caps for Sale activities to easily use with your children.
My son had a “Dress Like a Character Day” at school recently. He was thrilled to be able to choose one of his favorite characters. He loves the book Caps for Sale and quickly decided to dress like the peddler. This is an easy and adorable costume (which I was thrilled about). It was basically everything we had in the house.
This was such a fun and easy costume! One thing that Danny was concerned about was the colors of the hats. He noticed that there was a pattern of the peddler’s hats, and he did not have that pattern. I assured him it was fine because these were the caps we had at home, but I knew our next activity would involve patterns!
After his costume day, we revisited Caps For Sale taking note of the hat patterns. I planned an activity for after the reading together.
