Plan A...paper mache. I bought a 36 inch balloon, sought guidance from my friend's sister, the art teacher, and spent about 3 hours doing it. Next morning, the thing was not dry...so I panicked.
Then went to Plan B...fabric that resembled a moon stapled and ducktaped to foam board with a strap around his neck and waist. I added the American flag to be funny. The teachers loved it!
Next time, I know to start with Plan B. Plan C involved a hula hoop, so I'm glad we didn't end up there. And I thought I had it bad...I really felt bad for the kid's parents who was "hot mayonnaise".
I later found out that the kids made up the entire script by just adding lines to the story after the teacher said "once upon a time". Caden's class had a dog and batman that travelled through Alvin Space (no...not outerspace....Alvin Space!) and came across all kinds of friends in the process. (the Hot Mayonnaise was another class' villain).
