"There's 104 days of Summer vacation
And school comes along just to end it.
So the annual problem for our generation
is finding a good way to spend it.
Building a rocket
Or fighting a mummyOr climbing up the Eiffel Tower."
Did you find yourself singing along with this oh-so-catchy little cartoon theme song?
Our family can sing all the words in unison. My favorite song...Gitchy, Gitchy Goo (Means That I Love You).
We love ourselves some Phineas and Ferb. Seriously, the whole family loves it. There are very few shows that I will happily watch with my kids all while being genuinely entertained.
Phineas and Ferb is my most favorite kids' show. I laugh out loud and I sing along to all of their super funny and creative songs.
I have wanted to have Phineas and Ferb themed Halloween for years. In fact, the first time I contemplated doing it was when Little was small enough to be Perry. I chickened out of doing the costumes due in large part to those pesky little odd shape noggins.
Fast forward a few years and some slightly improved sewing skills, and Little originally the size of Perry the Platypus, is now the size of the ingenious master mind of Summer fun who the show is named for.
He is cute.
These costumes were fairly simple to make. The only glitch I had was in the making costumes of characters based in the Summer warm enough to be used in the crispness of a Halloween night.
In order to help Fallify the Summer clothes, I used warm and cozy materials. The shirt is made from orange and cream flannel. The shorts are made from blue fleece. Then to make them even warmer and cozier, I used cream colored fleece to act as "skin". I made leggings. I added in sleeve inserts.
The fleece was also used to make the quirky little triangle head.
So there ya have it, a warm version of a Phineas costume.
So guys the question is...
"What are we going to do today?"
He knows what we are going to do today...
We are gonna trick or treat and make a candy-riffic haul.
Come back tomorrow for another Phineas and Ferb Halloween
