Its been one of those super busy days….with not a minute of rest.So I’m up at this hour just so I don’t give up on the marathon so early.
Perky had a fancy dress competition in school and I found I had not yet blogged about it.And guess what?She went dressed up as Popcorn!
Does she look cute?
On Friday,Perk’s school sent a notice for all children to be dressed up as trees the following day!Living in a guest room with not too many resources and having all my stuff packed in boxes gave me jitters.I calmed myself and started working on the basic things I would need.I bought some chart paper ,paints(green and brown),coloured paper and hard board and of course,the handy Fevicol.
I first created a sort of top which I could put over her T-shirt and used the paints to make a bark and some branches.I also cut out some green leaves.Then I made the head gear so that only her face could be seen.The chart paper was backed by some light cardboard for this.Some leaves and a few colourful birds later ,my costume was ready.I even taught her to say a few words in keeping with her costume,”Birds are my friends.I am home to many Birds.”I punched a few holes on the side of the shirt and wove ribbons around them so that it stayed in place.
