Ruby & Wyatt had to be Thing 1 & Thing 2, from "Cat in the Hat."
With some leftover easter grass and blue fabric, I make shifted a hat for their fake hair. Red shirts & some labels & BOOM....THING 1 & THING 2.
My most simplest costume OF COURSE WON the costume contest. Not VERY many people actually dressed up...so the competition was slim. There was a lot of cat in the hats & thing 1 & thing 2s...but NO ONE ELSE dressed up as THE LORAX. Rykel was the bomb! I turned a Daddy Orange T-Shirt inside out and cut some Yellow Mustaches and eyebrows out of babysoft fabric that grandma had. With some awesome packing tape, those things stayed on a long time! And Rykel won her very own stuffed Cat in the Hat toy! She was elated, she loves stuffed things.
Needless to say those few hours in the morning cutting out random costume accessories and sewing a few hats, really paid off. I love that my kids love to dress up like I love to dress up!
