What a glorious pile of colour and fun lay on my bench yesterday. No.4 and I scrounged around the bargain stores and found a few items suitable for Wacky Hair and Hat Day at school today. Remember last year's entries? The rest came right out of our party boxes. We do love a party around here!
The girls couldn't think of a theme for their hats this year so it was left up to me. I chose 'The Winner' and 'Let's Party'. Just great the day before they had to be made. But that's a mother's life I suppose.
No.1 picked 'The Winner's' theme. Well that's the idea in the end I guess, to be the winner of the competition. She's hoping to get yet another certificate for this entry. Apparently every year she has brought a certificate home. But this year it was truly her own effort. I didn't help at all except for the odd bit of gluing.
The cans of stringy spray were a bit of hard work and there wasn't much in them either. Bit disappointing but they did the trick. I love how she has displayed the party poppers with the papers coming out.
No.2 went with the 'Let's Party' theme. It was great to have a balloon pump this year as those little water bombs are real cheek busters.
Doesn't her cocktail look good enough to drink? Most of the stringy stuff ended up in her cup. I just love the apple straw left over from a beach party years ago.
And the back is very pretty with bows and a bunch of party balloons. Well done girls!
It's so much fun at our school. They really get into lots of interesting ways to make learning fun.
Where is No.3's hat you ask? Well she's quite an individual this girl. Not her 'thing' either I'm afraid. Her big sisters are mortified about her lack of fun. Frankly, so am I!
Right we're off to the supermarket for our weekly bit of fun - not! I'm also going to research the letter T. It's the chosen letter for our themed dinner these holidays. Oh and our school hols start after school today. Hip hip horray!!!
Edited to add: Another two certificates came home this afternoon - phew, that was lucky!
