the littlest astronaut

For book week dress up parade at kindy this week, my eldest who is totally obsessed with Space of course wanted to be an astronaut. I put on my teacher crafty skills and came up with this. An empty box and old slippers spray painted silver, logos printed from the net, letters cut and glued from my felt stash, the only thing I bought was that amazing helmet from Spotlight. He was so excited and definitely a hit!

 FINALLY digging into my stash of OA rocket age.....sigh!!!!

 LOVIN that rocket pin from MLBOW

Till next time...
