Tarantula! Tarantula? I hear you say. Tenneille’s class had a dress up day last week at school and they had to go as something that starts with their first initial. If you know my dear Tenneille, that would not be a teapot or something dainty, no a spider is so much more fitting. That girl loves her bugs dinosaurs and dragons. She wanted to go as a Pterodactyl, but that rascally silent ‘p’, fixed that idea up.
Anyway, I traipsed off to Spotlight to see what kind of spidery fabric I could find. Of course, there was the small problem of, ‘how do I make a tarantula outfit?,” and did I mention I only gave myself a day to get this finished? Ah, nothing like being the queen of last minute projects. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the fabric with the golden spiderwebs. I kind of fashioned the fabric as wings, so it would stay on her back and not get in her way. I had a giggle imagining anything like this available it the overly pink girl’s section of toy stores!
The kids all looked super cute and there was actually another tarantula too! I think it was a nice day for the kids and gave them a chance to express their creative side too.
