This year the theme is The Seaside, all the children from the school and play school parade through the village and then there is a big fair on the school field.
Cue costume options.
Miss S "I want to be a diver" same as her best friend, quickly order a wetsuit and a dive mask.
Me to Miss H "how about a mermaid" nope, "a jellyfish?" nope
Miss H "i want to be a SHARK!"
Hmmmmm sharks are quite difficult so I talked her into being an octopus after seeing this tutorial.
A quick trip to the market, £4 later I returned with some white felt and some rather tacky purple lurex with gold sequins.
I started with a test leg....
Then seven more legs and a tutu later here we have it!!
She still wants a head, so I'll have to work in that.
