Emma will be in her first end-of-year school play as a snail. I have to admit I panicked at first when I heard that I had to make her costume. Oh, and I was instructed to make the costume simple...how on earth can I make a snail costume simple?!!? I googled "snail costume" and found a whole lot of nothing.
Grammy came up with a great idea of getting a Boppy pillow and coiling it up to make a shell. Fantastic! I sewed the "shell" to straps so Emma can wear it like a backpack. The rest of the costume was easy - headband, pipe cleaner and Styrofoam balls for the antennae and grey shirt and shorts for the body. I now have the cutest snail in the world!
