Sam knew right away that he wanted to be a wise man for Bible Character night so besides whipping up one of these, I needed to come up with some royal clothes for him to wear. When I think of 'royal' I think of purple so my mind automatically went to my Sukura Bloom linen sling. I draped it over one of my bathrobes which worked really well to cover the bulk in the middle (the result of shortening the robe to fit a seven year old). Add a crown and a bag of foreign coins from my my trips across two continents and wa-lah! A wise man costume that didn't cost a penny.
Sleepy Wrap and tucked strands of felt leaves I'd strung onto fishing line around her. All that was missing was the serpent but that wasn't a big deal considering how much my kids love snakes. Another free costume and two happy kiddos!
What Bible character do your kids like to dress up as?
Do you every use your baby carriers/wraps for something other than babywearing?
