Here is a my son with his Jack and the Bean Stalk costume. They have been studying Fairy Tales to help develop writing skills in their class and they are having a class party today and have to come dressed as a character from a fairy tale. So here he is with his chicken (well it is a rooster) who laid the golden egg. A pouch containing beans and a couple of golden eggs (balls because who knew you couldn't get fake eggs at any other time than Easter). But I thought I did pretty good and I only had to buy the beans. Definitely pays to have a good stash of goodies in the sewing room and a few unfinished projects.
