My child came from school last night and was excitedly talking about his upcoming classroom holiday dinner. And he was so jazzed that he could dress up as his favorite holiday food…..the next day.
Because of course, he forgot to tell me ahead of time. So after a few deep breaths Jellybean and I went to my craft stash and pulled out some red flannel. After much brainstorming we decided on canned cranberry sauce.
We fashioned a rectangle sewing up a neck hole, leaving two arm holes and seweing down the rest of the side panels. We then used some canned good to draw circles to show the whole berries suspended in the sauce.
Not my best or most professional crafting but my kid was in LOVE. So we happily packed him off to school. And true to fashion, he started feeling sick and vomitted that morning in class and went sent home before he could wear his costume. Sigh, such is mom life.
Maybe we can repurpose this for Christmas day?? Happy Crafting!!
