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!


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

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!
