  • Making a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Costume

    Draw a bread-slice shape on one of the pieces of poster board and cut with scissors. Repeat to create a duplicate shape. On each cutout, draw an interior line mimicking the shape of the bread. Color this outer region in with the brown tempera paint to create a crust-like effect.

    On two more pieces of poster board, draw huge amoeba-like shapes. Paint one light brown and one purple or red to represent peanut butter and jelly. Glue the “jelly” shape underneath the first piece of bread, so that the “crust” you’ve drawn is showing on the outside, with a jelly outline protruding from the underneath. Repeat this process with the second bread cutout and the peanut-butter cutout. Use the hole punch to create two holes at the top of each piece and use the elastic to create a sandwich board effect, tying the sides to the opposing board. Poke your head through the hole and feast your eyes on the results!
