8th Grade Book Character Day!

Today, my oldest daughter Ashley will visit several different elementary classrooms and tell the kids about her Book Character. She’s nervous, excited, and just as cute as can be.

Her teacher decided that the students couldn’t do any Disney characters or anything well known. They had to get creative and think outside the box.

So, Ashley picked Alice the Fairy by David Shannon.

It’s a really cute little story, and if you have a little girl, you definitely need to check this book out. My Lucy {age 5} just loves it. I’m pretty sure Ashley and I have both read the book to Lucy about 100 times.

Here’s the book character’s outfit:

And here’s how Ashley’s costume turned out:

Isn’t it adorable?

Ash borrowed the dress from a girl at church. She already had the purple shirt to put underneath it. I made and attached bows to her Mary Jane shoes, and I made the wand with a dowel rod, ribbon, and a star Christmas ornament. I designed the flower on the computer, printed it out, and laminated it. We attached it with a sparkly earring. I don’t think we could have matched the character’s outfit any better. {And, Ashley – you are so lucky you have a crafty mom.} 🙂

She looks adorable, and I know she’s going to have so much fun today. She gets to visit Zander and Jace’s classrooms, so they’re both really excited.

I’ll be heading to the school this afternoon to watch the Book Character parade. Lucy and Parker are sure to get a kick out of that.

What do you think, did we do a good job matching the character’s outfit?
