Clowning Around

Not long ago, the kids came home from preschool on a Friday with instructions to dress up like clowns the coming Tuesday. Now this wouldn’t have been a problem on most weekends, in fact I loved the idea, but this was a particularly busy weekend, so I didn’t have time to sew even the simplest of clown costumes.

We had one clown wig already. I was pretty sure there was a ruffly clown collar in the attic somewhere, but that was it. I sent out a call for help via Facebook and was able to get one more clown wig (Thanks, Kim!) On searching the attic, I discovered the clown collar was MIA, but in its place there was the actual clown costume that went with the collar! Score!

But what about the other kids?

So in the absence of anything better, I pulled together a hodgepodge of clothing and did my best to create four clowns out of it. I don’t think the results are too bad!

You may notice that Zachary is wearing no clown makeup. He refused to let me put any on him. Not a surprise!

All in all, I don’t think they turned out too bad! The kids certainly enjoyed the dressing up! Hurrah for Clown Day!
