Frugal Kid: Making a Cow Costume

Cow Appreciation Day is 7/13 so I thought it would be fun to show you a super easy way to get some free food at Chick-fil-a. If you don’t have a Chick-fil-a nearby, you can always use this idea for Halloween!

Materials:

White or light colored shirt and shorts
Yarn
Peel and Stick Foam (black)
Scissors
Construction Paper (white and brown)

Directions:
1. Cut circles in the peel and stick foam and adhere them to the clothing.

2. Cut small pieces of yarn to create a tail and hang that from the back of the shorts.

3. Cut 1 sheet of paper in half (vertical) and then tape or staple the 2 halves together to form the headband.

4. Cut 2 ears out of paper and attach them to the headband.

Educational Activities:
Math: Cut small and large circles from the foam and have your child create patterns when adhering them to the clothing.
Language Arts: Create a sign with a funny chicken or cow saying and attach that to the costume. Make sure your child writes or traces the words to get in their writing practice!
