Cow Costume

About a week and a half ago was Chick-fil-A's Cow Appreciation Day in which you could get free food if you dressed up like a cow. We have one of these restaurants a mile down the road from our house, and Baby Bear loves it there because of the play area. So, we three bears went there for dinner that day. A couple hours before leaving, Baby Bear and I set to work on his cow costume.

I began with an old pillow case that was white on the top and had a design along one end. The pillow case was too long for Baby Bear's costume anyway, so I cut the design off the end. Then, I cut holes for his head and arms so that it was almost like a dress. (Almost.) Since we still had our heart sponge in tact from Valentine's Day activities, we use that to add spots to the pillow case. Baby Bear helped paint the heart sponge black, and then I pressed it onto random spots on the pillow case (he did a few spots but preferred to stick to painting). While the pillow case hung to dry, I cut cow ears out of black construction paper and taped them to a headband. The whole thing took about 15 minutes (plus a little drying time), and Baby Bear was the cutest little calf in the whole restaurant. :)
