ancient greek day costume!

October 17th, 2013

Greek day finally arrives and we are prepared!

tomorrow is Greek day at school and we are ready, I didn’t exactly do much other than making some quick wrist warmers and a thin belt but it has made my son happy

we have had a great week making his mask and even made a shield, he is so enthusiastic about this topic that I want to do everything we can to encourage him

he wanted to go as a Greek hero so we added a waist coat and wrist warmers to his outfit, which are meant to be like armour to protect hero’s,

he wanted to do a Zues mask or possibly Posidon, I have to admit I liked Posidon more, so much more imagination for it and his idea were great, zues seems a little boring to make as he mostly just looks like a man! but in the end the most important thing was that he made what he wanted and he was happy! and we had fun!

the outfit was fairly simple!

ancient Greek man with zues mask, made with poster paint, lots of glue and glitter, pipe cleaners and wool.


we decided he does look a bit like a JEDI! cuffs/wrist warmers made with brown and yellow yarn, crochet belt to hold it in place and the t-shirt was an adult medium


with a waist coat (we bought as a result of going to the 3 Wishes Faery Fest in Cornwall)l we made a Hero of him! (I think the idea is that he looks like Hercules!)


so if your little ones are having a Greek day (or any dressing up) why not let there ideas run and see what you can make to suit there imagination!
