So I returned from holiday in the early hours of this morning and had a great time in Gran Canaria.
More on that later but more importantly (for Zachy) he had a birthday party to go to. Upon checking Facebook I realised it was an Alice in Wonderland fancy dress theme! I had been so pleased with myself that I had actually sorted a present for the beautiful birthday girl before holiday that I then ran around like a headless chicken looking through fancy dress boxes, checking to see if any fancy dress shops in the area were open and when I eventually calmed down googled the characters in the film.
Having already rooted through the dressing up box I knew what I had on offer and once the King of Hearts popped up on my screen I was on a roll 😉
So the next time your little boy needs an alice in wonderland dress up – here it is 🙂
Use a captain hook or equivalent red pirate top then cut 2 pieces of (ideally) red card out in the shape of a heart, (we had to use pink and paint it red) and attach to a wooden spoon, blue peter styly with sticky tape:
Get two pieces of yellow card and staple together, measure around the top of said little boys head and staple again, cut out a pointy top to make a crown.
Grab your eyeliner and draw on a twirly moustache and wallah:
One King Of Hearts 🙂
