Dressing up as an outer space creature is "in the bag" with these grocery sack vests. Kids who love to use their imaginations really have fun wearing a costume of their own creation.
Place a folded paper grocery bag on a flat surface, with the bottom of the bag facing away from you. With Crayola® Scissors, cut all the way from the center of the open edge to the middle of the bottom of the bag. On the bottom of the bag, cut a round hole large enough for your neck. On each side of the bag (the smaller surfaces) and near where you cut the neck hole, cut arm holes so the bag will sit on your shoulders. Adults may need to help younger children cut out the vest.
Turn the whole bag inside out if there is writing on the outside, so you have a plain brown background for your creation.
Cover a table or the floor with newspaper before you begin to paint.
Now, imagine how your visitor from outer space would be dressed. Decorate your vest using Crayola Metallic FX Crayons, Crayola Metallic Colored Pencils, Crayola Markers, and/or Crayola Washable Kid's Paint. Dry.
Glue straws, ribbon, and/or construction paper to the vest for the effect you want to create. Make the vest with Crayola School Glue for the effect you want to create.
Add to your costume by creating a mask from a paper plate and the colorful Crayola products that you used to decorate your vest. Attach ribbons so it can be adjusted to fit you. Get together with your friends and create a play with your characters.
