Penelope starts Kindergarten officially on Monday. We’re all thrilled about this transition. She is ready to face the big wide world of school.
It’s been fun to make and buy school clothes for her. I haven’t been very adventurous in the buying department, sticking to Walmart and Target for the essentials. It’s not like it matters. Yet.
I found these cute sneakers for $5, but they had white laces in them. White laces get dingy and Penelope’s not quite ready to tie her own shoes yet. So I replaced the laces with some fancy-pants elastic. I just threaded the holes and sewed the two ends together. Boom. Done. She’s ready to slip these on and off at a moment’s notice. You can do it too! Try out a cute fold over elastic
or a picot elastic.
Next up: the backpack. We had a fun conversation in the car about what kind of backpack she should get. I think we’ve got a fun little craft project up our sleeves. Looking forward to sharing her creativity with you soon.
What preparations have you been working on for the school year? Any fun crafty projects?
