A homemade baker's costume can be tied to several Mother Goose nursery rhymes.
It's fairly easy to make a baker's costume suitable for your little one.
Here's a few things you'll need:
The key to this outfit is the apron and baker's hat.
To make the baker's hat start by cutting the poster board into a strip about 26" long and 3" wide.
Take three sheets of white tissue paper and fold in half long ways.
Using the short end of the tissue papers, tape them along the posterboard strip, slightly overlapping each sheet.
With the taped side out, make a circle with the band around your child's head to determine how tight to make the hat. Paper clip the ends and remove from the child's head.
Gather the ends of the tissue paper and tape around it tightly to close off the opening.
Cut off any excess tissue paper, remove the paper clips and turn the hat inside out.
Remeasure the hat and staple the ends to secure the band.
Puff the tissue paper to give your hat that great baker's look.
If you would like, you can write on the band "Baker", "Muffin Man" or perhaps their name.
Dress your child in regular clothes with an apron and the bakers hat.
Have your child carry a mixing bowl with spoon or cake or muffin pans.
Dust their cheeks, nose and apron with a little flour to finish the look.
