13 Hat Crafts for Kids for Mad Hatter Day

What is a Hatter?

A hatter was a man or woman who made hats professionally. In the past, a hatter was a necessary profession because it was often considered rude or impolite to appear in public without a hat. There were hats for every occasion, from riding hats to church hats, and even hats for sleeping.


Who is the Mad Hatter?

The Mad Hatter is a character from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. He has been sentenced to perpetual tea-time, and is unable to get away from the tea table. While Alice visits, the Mad Hatter makes silly jokes, switches seats, makes a mess, and is generally rude. The Hatter’s name is derived from the colloquial phrase “mad as a hatter,” which is used to identify an eccentric person. The exact origin of the phrase is unknown.
