You miss one PTA meeting and they plan a themed event that you have absolutley no idea about!

I need to dress two dds as something 'Spring themed' or 'alphabet' themed.

Am totally paralysed with lack of ideas.
We have done World Book Day type event, I thought I was off the hook.

Now I can make an OK model and my paper mache is pretty damn fine, btu what on earth can I make??????????

What about one dd as a daffodil and the other as a lamb?
Both quite simple to do.

Lamb perfect - I have made one before for nativity.

Hmm daffodil????

They cam go as daffodills.

Dress them in green. Make pointy headress out of card to resemble petals.

Use yellow fabric, or yellow crepe paper, and gather it up to go round head as trumpet.

They could probably hold "something long and green" for leaves. Not sure what though!

Exactly what I was thinking fizz

You could make leaves like fairy wings.
Or if they have any fairy wings, you know the sort that goes on their back, then just cover them with green fabric or something.

on the alphabet line - there's plenty to choose from in the Letterland phonics alphabet

I did think Letterland, but of course we use jolly phonics at school. This would prob get them excluded .

send them in with sandwich boards demanding 'NO MORE DRESSING UP DAYS!"

Get a large cardboard box and put holes in side and 2 pieces of string as braces so box fits over child's head and legs come out the bottom. Easy to remove for toilet and sitting down. Draw, cut stick pictures of anything beginning with b on it. Or pin buttons bead etc
