This week is "Spirit Week" at our local school. My daughter needed to wear something made from a garbage bag today.
What to make? I'm no seamstress.
I told her that I could create a skirt and she replied, "I don't like black. Those bags are black."
I answered, "I understand that you really like pink. However, no one makes garbage bags in pink. Perhaps you can invent those some day and make us all rich. For now, though, you'll have to settle for BLACK bags."
She sighed a heavy sigh. What a big dilemma for a Preschooler. No pink garbage bags. Maybe Disney needs to pick up on this so they can rake in a little more green.
I'm not a big advocate of all things pink; believe me. I am, however, an advocate of listening to my kids and hearing what THEY like... even if it differs from what I like. So I pondered what could be done... I had just cut some pink tool from her tutu dress the night before, because it was too long and was making her trip.
Here's what we came up with today. Can you tell she's just a TAD happy over it?
I pinned pieces of tool to the garbage bag using small safety pins:
