Total Time Needed: Afternoon Or Evening

This crafty pizza costume is one a parent and child can "cook" up together. Kids just love making the felt "toppings"!

Materials

  • Sheet of 1/2-inch-thick foam (approximately twice your child's height by 2 feet wide)
  • 6 large paper fasteners
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Clothespins
  • Hot glue gun
  • Spray paint
  • 2 sponges
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Felt

Instructions

Pizza Costume - Step 1

1. To make the crust, fold over about 10 inches of foam at one of the narrow ends and attach it with evenly spaced paper fasteners. Fold the entire sheet of foam in half lengthwise. With a marker, draw a wide triangle rising from the crust to the top of the foam.

2. Cut out the triangle shape through both pieces of foam, using clothespins to connect the sheets. Apply a line of hot glue, about 6 inches at a time, approximately 1 inch from the outside edge. Press the layers together firmly for a few seconds after gluing.
