365 Photo Project :: day 112 june 12 :: Abigail's Kingfisher Bird Costume

photo of the day:  Abigail as a Kingfisher bird

Abigail's Art's Focus School featured their end of the year dance showcase.  The 2nd graders have been studying birds and performed a piece where each student was a different bird.  

The kids were encouraged to create their own costumes.  Abigail was excited about this!  She told me just what she wanted.  On Sunday, after church, we picked up some blue felt and feathers.  We created a template.  She and I worked quickly tracing the pattern and cutting out felt pieces.  Then we glued the felt feathers to a white shirt.  We went berry picking for the rest of the day.  When we got home we added feathers to the wings(sleeves).  She wore a skirt and legging from Old Navy.  And her costume was complete in just a couple of hours.  She looked so beautiful and her dance was captivating.
