It took forever in deciding on the perfect character. It was June 2, for a Pete's sake so to much costume was a definite no. Then after turning on Netflix it hit me that Magic School bus was the way to go. Charli Beth completely agreed as well and we decide to go with the great Mrs. Frizzle!
In the days to come I searched Goodwill for a dress that I could decorate up but instead I found other adorable treasures. So while visiting my Mom she gave me an older shirt of hers that is now to large for her. I brought it home and began cutting and sewing.
No, it wasn't perfect but is Mrs. Frizzle known for her perfection? Not at all.
We purchased 23 cent felt from Walmart and cut out solar system shapes. As we were running out of time I decided to glue them on. I then taped stars onto brown flat shoes and stars onto cheap earrings.
Overall, I think my Mrs. Frizzle look a like was pretty cute! It was cheap and easy to make, which is totally my style!
Hopefully, next years costume will be just as cool for third grade!
