Micaela's word was GIGGLE.
So how do you illustrate the word giggle in a costume. We brainstormed ALOT. Let's just say Micaela's imagination exceeded the supplies in my craft room and serious negotiations took place throughout the evening. In the end, this is what we did....
We cut circles out of felt and made funny GIGGLE faces and expressions with buttons for eyes and lots of different yarns for hair. We pinned the faces to her skirt.
