While preschool had book week activities, it seems that only since the boy has been going to school has it taken on some sort of seriousness. All the children participate, and last night he came home talking about costumes. The only problem was that he changed his mind a few times about what he wanted to dress as. At first it was Inspector Bubble Wrap from The 65-Storey Treehouse then the boy from the Paper Planes book followed by Captain Hook from Peter Pan. This morning his final request was for badger from The Wind in the Willows, which is his current night-time book. 

Thanks to an overflowing craft cupboard, we were able to whip something up in about 15 minutes over breakfast. Then little miss preschool wanted to dress as a zebra - with a little improvisation we made that happen too!

Badger costume
1. Cut out the letter "B" from a piece of felt and sewed it onto a t-shirt.
2. Drew a badger face on a piece of cardboard, cut it out and created eye holes using a scalpel knife. Stapled elastic to the sides to fit over the head. 

Zebra costume
Existing mask with lots of stripes!

Happy Book Week!
