the red crayon



the red crayon went to school... she chanted red...red...red...i am a red crayon... all the way back from school...
but on stage she pondered over the world and its meaning...

the little abacus next to her was adorable, there was a hip hop barbie who wept on stage, and a teddy bear who refused to get off the stage...the aeroplane who glided away got the first prize while his mom was most upset that he did not say the whole rhyme ...pop eye forgot to swig from his can of spinach...and i wanted to pickpocket little mowgli in his red diaper!

all the toys had done their bit in fifteen minutes... and then the teachers bid them good bye...the next shift of children were expected!


...but i must add the whole half hour ( fifteen mins was just a fib, to stress the point about why bby sucks) was great fun. 90 % of the costumes were homemade... and falling apart in half an hour!

She looks so cute!
What a neat idea! I wouldn't have thought about that but sure will keep this in mind for Apple's school parties.

poppins: chewable? like the back of all our pencils in school?

nainaashley: i had a blast making the costume. i should have clicked the detail of the back- i giggled away, i punched holes on the two ends and laced it up like a bodice. my own little scarlet o hara. was mad that i could not find a fitting full sleeved red t shirt.
and clearly the other moms had had a blast too -pop eye was adorable!
