Wacky Hair and T-Shirt Day

As school is wrapping up for Emmy, she's having lots of fun activities at school. Hard to believe she'll be a First Grader next year. This week was wacky hair and wacky t-shirt day.

She goes to vision therapy in Orlando tonight so I didn't want to spray paint her hair or anything too crazy. I sectioned her hair into 8 pigtails, braided them and then looped them and rubber banded them. It created this looped look. She really liked it and I hope she doesn't want it in her normal rotation of hairdos!

Now on to the t-shirt. I just bought a plain white shirt and grabbed some bright fabric markers. I had her pick 3 little mini Beanie Babies I had from McDonald's. I bought a massive box of these at a yard sale for $5.00. They're running out from birthday goody bags, and I don't know what I'll do when they're gone! So I hot glued the animals on the shirt and made sure they wouldn't easily fall off. Then I used my fabric markers to write all kinds of animal jokes for kids.

Here's a few:

What happens when it rains cats and dogs? You step in poodles.

Why don't they take tests in the jungle? Too many cheetahs.

Where do cows go on Saturday night? To the moovies.

So here is the finished shirt. She liked it, especially the koala on the front with the caption,             "Help! I can't hang on!"
