DIY wolf costume

My  son’s favorite character these days is the Big Bad Wolf. So for Dress up  Day in school I decided to make him a wolf costume. His costumes are always homemade. It’s fun and inexpensive.

I looked this up on the internet and found some designs using felt and a hoodie. Since it’s still not cold enough for a hoodie I decided to improvise and used the same pattern on an old hat I had. Much more comfortable in this weather! I embroidered his shirt to read “LITTLE WOLF”.

Do have a look at the tail and the claws! (also made of felt)

I think he can just see under the Wolf’s nose!

The Big Bad Wolf

Reposting this. All I’m reading these days is fairy tales, reading to my son that is. This post is inspired by the story of Red Riding Hood but has been rewritten in the form of a poem to suit all characters (especially trying to make the villain look good!)

My son always seems to love the villain of the story. Nowadays the Big Bad Wolf is his favorite character. So yesterday I wrote this poem for him:
