Today was Clown
Day at Preschool!
I was bit of a procrastinator on
the girls clown costumes.
I had made Nixon a tutu last year for Clown
Day and I intended to make Isla one.
I decided to take the DORA tutu from her
birthday and add more colors.
I grabbed a pair of adult clown tights
and cut them up to make leg warmers.
I was lazy and and didn't really finish them
but it was a lot less work and still did the trick!
Mrs. Sue appliqued Nixon a clown t-shirt last year and
I intended the girls to wear appliquéd shirts but they
were no where to be found.
(I have a feeling we will find them when we
get around to cleaning our playroom!)
So about 1am this morning I used left over
tulle and cut strips of the tights to
make bows to add to white t-shirts!
All together I think the girl's clown
outfits turned out cute!
I also was inspired by Pinterest to make these
cute clown hats filled with candy!
There was no tutorial, I just based it off a picture I saw.
I used waffle cones, red icing and skittles.
I bought gum-balls to put on the top of each
hat but I learned very quick that they were too heavy.
I also bought laffy taffy to fill each cone but
they were to big so I used Skittles!
Again, not what I planned but they turned out cute too!
And were very easy to make!
Nixon came up to me at the party and said
"Mommy, I really like the clown hats you made.
You are the best cook ever!"
This made me laugh b/c I am NOT a cook!
What did we do at Clown Day???
We snapped a few pictures before we left the house!
We tried getting Roman to pose for a picture.
The girls gave "clown kisses"
Isla sang the blessing before
she ate her party food!
Isla shared her food with Roman!
Isla grabbed a picture with
her teacher, Mrs. Michelle!
Nixon and her teacher Mrs. Regina!
We then went outside to
play carnival games!
Roman even got a few turns!
The kids then enjoyed all their candy they won!
They have enough candy to
last a couple of months!
Jared and I took a few pics with the clowns!
It was a great day!
As we were walking to the car
Nixon said it was the best day EVER!
