Occasionally at school the kids get a non-uniform day, ie they can wear street clothes to school. This is usually accompanied by the suggestion that the kids bring in tzedakah (money for charity) for the privilege of no uniform. Sometimes there is a theme. Today's theme was: spots.
I don't know about where you live, but over here polka dots are for girls and stripes are for boys. I also felt it was a bit silly to buy a new shirt/pair of leggings/etc for one day.
Hmmm, what to do?
Make our own! We used our surplus supply of white school shirts and a hidden stash of fabric markers to make individualized spotty shirts.
Finished product: What a dotty group!!
(Princess E did not want to make a dotty shirt and only wanted a dotty headband. Preteen, anyone?)
