Camp Day 3...We made it!

The final day of dressing up for camp is here!  Overall, creating costumes was not as awful as I anticipated but I have to admit I am glad that I don't have to think about it again until next year!  Today's theme was dressing up as a superhero.  You could create your own superhero, or you could dress up as Batman, Captain America, etc.  My girls have never been interested in superheros, so we did not have any costumes to use at home.  I decided to go back to Dollar Tree (luckily I have one really close to my house)!  We bought a plastic tablecloth to cut into a cape and stickers to decorate the cape.  I also bought ribbon to use to attach the cape around her neck.   (I cut 2 small slits at the top of the cape, fed the ribbon through, and tied it.)

My daughter decided to be a superhero that helps dogs and cats that are in trouble.  She chose dog, cat, and star stickers to decorate her cape.  Then, I used face paint to create a mask on her face with paw prints.  (I am getting better with the face paint!  I have discovered that it is easier to paint large areas with a brush.  It also helps if you add a tiny amount of water to the face paint.)

Again, I was very happy with the results.  More importantly, she was excited to wear her costume to camp today!
