  • This cute idea will be the talk of the neighbourhood when you take your child out.
  • Put a hole in the middle of a red-checkered tablecloth – it should look like a rain poncho when you’re done
  • Cut off-white yarn into pieces the length of spaghetti – half a skein should do the job
  • Glue them in bunches and individual strands to a paper plate using a hot glue gun
  • Paint 8 small Styrofoam balls brown, then glue about 5 of them to the plate
  • Mix your brown acrylic paint and red acrylic paint to get a tomato sauce colour
  • Drizzle this paint mixture over the spaghetti and meatballs
  • Glue the plate to the tablecloth and the remaining meatballs into the location of your choice
  • Use a small pot as a hat, which you can glue the spaghetti to and drizzle some of the sauce on


Girls will love the chance to put on this ever-popular 20’s-style costume.

  • Glue 5 yards of a 4-inch fringe on a white ribbed tank top
  • Make sure you only attach the fringe to the front and hot-glue it in rows starting from the bottom
  • Take an 18-inch piece of 2-inch wide ribbon and glue a feather to it
  • Tie the ribbon around your child’s head to make it a headband, and top off with a feather boa

Rubik’s Cube

  • Cut a hole in the top of a 16 x 16″ box for your child’s head
  • Make sure the flaps are cut off the open end
  • Glue 4 8 1/2 by 11″ pieces of red paper to one side and use black electrical tape to create lines in between the paper sheets
  • Repeat this process using yellow, green and blue paper for the other side

Your child will draw plenty of attention outfitted as this popular 70’s and 80’s toy.
