How and Why

Empowering a child to be independent in their self-care and self-regulation. Hativity offers a child the opportunity to customize their hat to express their individual sense of interests and style.


Improve social interaction and communication with the custom designed patches. The emoji patches with facial images such as happy, sad, love, crying and laughing assist a child with expressing their feelings and emotions. The variety of patch designs and categories help a child learn their colors, counting, build their vocabulary, identify textures, holidays and more!  


Hativity can be used as part of a comprehensive sensory program. Hativity’s tailored fit provides a sense of comfort and gentle pressure produces a calming effect. The sensory patches offer a variety of textures, including chenille, felt, puff, cloth and embroidery. Children love the feel of these various textures on their hands and fingers! The industrial strength Velcro secures the patches on to the hat and improves hand strength and coordination. A colorful activity book with lace tie binding keeps all the patches organized. The activity book also offers the opportunity to practice fine motor skills of lacing and tying. Children love the sound of the Velcro patches being pulled off the hat and book, over, over and over again! Lastly, aromatherapy can be used with Hativity. Place a drop of your favorite essential oil on the Hativity patch on the top brim of the hat. Great for children with motion sickness or sensitivity to yucky smells!
