Time: 30 minutes

Effort: Easy - some sewing required

Materials:

  • Big poofy dress (from Goodwill)
  • Toothbrushes
  • Dental floss packs
  • Gum for a tooth necklace (Eclipse or Dentyne Ice)
  • Poster board for wings and wand
  • Dowel
  • Elastic or string
  • Foil
  • Body glitter and glitter hair spray
  • Needle and thread
  • Hot glue gun
  • Bag of Gold Coins (optional)

Instructions: Sew the toothbrushes and dental floss packs to the dress. To make the necklace, thread the gum onto a piece of thick string and tie a knot. Cut wings out of the poster board and cover with foil. Attach strings or elastic to wings and secure over your person's shoulders. Cover the dowel in foil. Cut a tooth out of poster board and glue it to the end of the dowel. Now you have a wand! Put body glitter on person's face. And spray some glitter in her hair.

Keep it hot (or cold)! No one likes cold soup or warm, wilted salad. Use a thermos or ice pack in your child's lunch box to help keep his lunch fresh until it's time to eat.
