My 10-year-old (his real birthday was last week) decided he wanted a Robin Hood theme. Several months ago I agreed that it sounded like an interesting topic as I imagined full-garb costumes hand sewn by me for each invitee, lots of bows that we'd whittle from tender tree saplings and string with ? ... but alas, none of those things happened.
So Plan B is:
Robin Hood Hats made from green foam sheets and red feathers. Here's a good video to watch on how to make your own.
Pouches made from brown felt and a crocheted chain of yarn for the handle to hold all the treasure.
Treasure Chest. I was going to have Little John (aka my husband) make one from corrugated, but he's so swamped at work, and Michael's was having a 60% off sale, so we're using this one instead. Pretty good deal, I say.
We filled it with coins and gems (the gems were on clearance at Michael's too... good thing!) Now I just need to stow it away and make clues so the boys can find it. I'll share some After-Party scenes next week, but for now, I've got to go make some bulls-eye cupcakes.
