I know this is late. However, since our blog goal is to encourage others, I still wanted to make this post. My daughter, Katie, is turning 12 this year. With only an older brother, she is on the brink for Halloween. Should she trick or treat? Should she not? Last year we went to a concert at the Arizona State Fair with some of our very favorite Christian rock bands. So, when Katie received an invitation for a costume party for Oct. 30th this gave her the reason to forgo trick or treating and head to the fair once again. The following pictures outline the costume we created.
Popsicle Sticks $1.50 + tax (already had some, though)
Red Flower bush $2.50 + tax
Safety Pins on hand
Hot glue gun on hand (look at the thrift shop for a cheap one- all it does
is melt glue. Plug it in and if it gets hot- it works)
Shoes $2.50 + tax
Katie would tell you the best part about the costume was the anticipation of seeing it all come together. Also, if you cultivate spending this kind of time with your kids, they initiate for you. Katie is the one that came to me and requested that we use her costume from the Friendship Day and also suggested many of the additions. She never felt like we were being cheap or skimping on her costume. As a result, she won the Best Costume Award at her party. Now that's a smile worth a million dollars!
Catch the crafting spirit and pass it on!
