Storybook Costume

26 Feb

February has been Celebrate Books month.  Each Wednesday has been something special.  We have had books and bagels, where parents and grandparents were invited to school to eat bagels and read  some books with their kids.  Yesterday was my favorite, “Drop Everything and Read” and the kids got to wear their pajamas to school.  Last Wednesday took a bit more work on my part because it was- dress like your favorite storybook character day.  Yes, it kinda felt like the horrible week before Halloween all over again!

We went through their book shelves and Aleah wanted to be Amelia Bedelia and Sophie picked Madeline.  Here is some of the work:

We could not for the life of us find a wide brimmed sun-hat for Madeline to wear but we made it work =)

As Amelia would say, “It was plum fun!”
