A book report about Helen Keller…

on April 14, 2013

It’s that time again…  time for another book report that is.  If you are a regular reader, you already know how excited I am this year over my Little Bit 2’s book reports because not only are there many different project ideas to choose from, but they are also a way for my LB2 to get creative (and excited) after reading a good book!

The book she chose to do her report on this go round was a biography about Helen Keller.  Right away she knew she wanted to dress up like Helen Keller so she decided to do “Mystery Person” and see if her classmates will be able to guess who she is dressed up as after reading her card with “clue’s” she’d written on it.  We dug through her closet and found this old Easter dress I made from a couple years ago:

A few alterations and she was in heaven with her dress.

But she still thought something was missing.  After flipping through the book and checking out the pictures, she decided what she needed was an apron.  Any old apron would not do for this one though, she drew me out a picture of what she had in mind so we scoured the internet for a tutorial (It’s SO much better with a tutorial!) only to find there was not one single tutorial for THE apron she wanted.  Hmmmm.  What to do?

So, I had to sit down and really figure out what exactly she wanted and how I could make it happen.

Here’s the apron she liked that we found online:

She had a few suggestions to change the apron a little bit.  Like a shorter, not so full skirt and less “frilly stuff”.

So, we sketched it out:

And here’s the one I came up with:

2013-03-17 17.10.06 2013-03-17 17.10.11

I am pretty pleased with the outcome and…

LB2 was happy too :).

The day of the presentation, she had her outfit, her list of “clues” and was ready for her presentation
