100th day of school outfits

I just wanted to take a few minutes to share some happenings in the Learning Ahoy classroom!

Recently, we celebrated the 100th day of school.   I made myself a shirt using graphics from one of my favorite artists, Laura from Whimsy Clips (aka My Cute Graphics).   I knew she would have just what I needed to make myself an awesome shirt.  To add the tally marks I used a font called tally marks and you can find it here.  Then I just created the image in powerpoint and printed it on a t-shirt transfer.  I got my transfer from AC Moore, but you can also find them on Amazon .

My son, B, who is in kindergarten needed to dress up like an old man, so I made him a bow tie and suspenders using another T-shirt transfer.   He wanted a shark pattern for the bow tie.  I found the bowtie pattern on Google images and then filled it with a shark pattern that I also found on Google Images.   To make the suspenders I just drew a rectangle and filled it in green.  I used Powerpoint again to design this shirt.  B, also wanted a beard and a mustache, but all I had was brown eyeliner.  We used that to make his beard and mustache and to fill in his eyebrows a bit.   He then put baby powder in his hair to try to make it look white or gray.

Did you dress up for the 100th day of school?
