Has your child ever come up to you to tell you that he is going to be the parrot of the pirate in his school's show? No? I thought so! His teacher contacted me with the details, a parrot in a pirate's show (that was about all the details I got more or less)!
Great! I was looking forward to this, because the only thing I could think of was papier mache, and if that didn't work, well I don't know what I would have done! And of course my husband came up with many brilliant ideas! So if you're ever stuck with a costume just papier mache the whole thing, and if that doesn't work, feathers, lots and lots of feathers!!
What was your craziest costume as a kid? Or what costume have you had to make for your kids?
I would love to know, as my mother made many costumes for us when we were kids (usually winning the big prize!) and this is the first time I've had to make a costume (better mask and wings) from scratch!
Tomorrow it's his last day of school and the first day for us to come up with ideas to entertain both kids!
Wish us luck!
