I know I promised to post a different Purim theme each day this week, but sometimes we don't have control of the situation. Monday evening, my wireless router blew. And I didn't even know that that was possible, but somehow there is no power coming out of it. I guess I'll have to replace that. Yesterday, I tried to get online with my computer that's actually connected to the phone line, but my husband was in middle of doing a major upload and the computer was way to slow to use.
So here I am, a day late, but I will deliver another theme, as promised.
I'm now going to go 3 years back. My kids dressed as crayons. Each of my boys picked a color. I bought felt from a fabric store, as well as a thin stuffing. This costume is super easy to make. I sewed, but its not necessary, fabric glue will work as well. Below I wrote how I would go it if I was to use glue, but will be neater if you sewed it.
Use a puff fabric paint in a matching color to finish up the costume with the crayola name.
For the hat, take stiff interfacing and cut to make a cone shape large enough to fir on you child's head. Cover in matching felt and staple the cone to hold the shape.
For the Meshloach Mones, I bough brightly striped, colorful desktop supply holders. I filled it with crayon decorated cookies and other foods not related to the theme, but looked presentable.
