Coolest FAILED Spelling Test Costume - Costume before Spelling test words written in by my son
An actual spelling test given every week.
Coolest FAILED Spelling Test Costume - in the Halloween parade
This FAILED Spelling Test Costume was inspired by your website! I loved the scrabble costume that is featured on your website and wanted to make one for my 8 year old's school Halloween parade. For some reason he was not thrilled about wearing a scrabble costume. (he wanted to be a vampire).
I started to show the scrabble picture to his friends and asked if they would wear it if I made it. I received a 100% yes from his friends and my use of peer pressure started to work. I decided to make the costume and send it to school with him and see what would happen.
In the process of making the costume my son was watching a Halloween Episode of Fineas and Ferb, it was the Haunted House episode. There is a scene where the character Balgeet is dressed up in the Haunted house as a "scary" failed math test. My son thought it was hilarious and from that point the scrabble costume turned into a failed spelling test costume.
My son, was "on board" and the process of becoming a FAILED spelling test began! It was simple! I had a large piece of cardboard, cut a hole for his head and arms and taped white paper on it. I copied EXACTLY the format of the spelling test he takes every week. My son then wrote that weeks spelling words VERY WRONG! He wanted to get 8 wrong. He also has to write a sentence with one of the spelling words so we made up a Halloween themed sentence and made a bunch of mistakes there too.
Pictures included are of the "real" spelling test and the "live" Halloween costume spelling test.
My son decided last year that he wanted a Homemade Homework Costume. We were unable to find any other homework costumes online so we had to go totally original. Which at first was really difficult but we decided to create a notebook with a pencil. We used a cardboard box and covered it with brown shipping paper then we put blue poster board on the front and decorated it with bright colored items that included felt letters, stickers, and flash cards. We put white felt on the side and top. We added the spiral to the side to hold the pencil. The pencil was designed after one he had in his school bag and included pink foam created eraser. The back of the box was decorated with the funniest Homework Excuses we could find. His favorite excuses were “ I made it into a plane and it was hijacked.” And “my sister ate it.”
