Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree Costume

0

My daughter Caylin is wearing this costume. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom was her absolute favorite book to read this year. We would read it several times a day, so I thought it would be fitting to make a costumes pertaining to the book. In the book, the alphabet letters were chased up a coconut tree. I started out with a brown jogging suit.

Next I cut out colored letters out of felt and sewed them onto the jogging suit. I then spray painted three styrofoam balls to use as the coconuts. I attached the styrofoam balls together with toothpicks, then used artificial leaves and stuck them in the styrofoam also. Then I used an old bicycle helment and spray painted it brown then glued colored letters on it, also glued the styrofoam to the helmet.

I taped a toboggan to the helment so that Caylin could wear the hat. Caylin received many compliments on this costume.
