Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree Costume


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.
