All aboard the Magic Schoolbus! Bring this beloved schoolteacher to life with our Primary DIY Miss Frizzle costume. Miss Frizzle always says, "Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!" but you won't make any mistakes when you follow our easy DIY instructions using our Primary essentials. The student becomes the teacher!
For the dress
- Use the following felt colors: White, Gray, Black, Yellow, Orange, Red, Magenta, Blue, and Green.
- Cut out 30 stars out of yellow felt.
- Next, cut out 4 crescent moons out of white felt. Next, cut out 2 circles out of gray felt [these will be the moons “elbow pads”]. Draw sleeping eyes on the 2 moons.
- Next, cut out 2 medium circles out of orange felt and 2 large sun-rays out of yellow felt. Hot glue the medium circle of orange felt to the large yellow felt sun-ray, repeat step for duplicate.
- Next, cut out 2 medium circles out of red felt and 10 elongated triangles out of yellow felt.
- Hot glue 5 of the elongated yellow triangles to the medium red felt circle, repeat step for duplicate.
- Then, cut out 2 semi-circle out of magenta felt.
- Cut out 2 large circles out of blue felt and 6 irregular shapes to create land masses for the Earth out of green felt. Hot glue 3 of the land masses to the large blue felt circle, repeat step for duplicate.
- Now that you’ve assembled all the planets/sun, hot glue or fabric tape all the pieces to the dress. There should be 15 stars, 2 moons, a sun, an Earth, a Mar’s, and a Mercury on each side of the dress. The two sleeping moons will be the “elbow pads’ on the sleeves.
- Use a Chameleon, Lizard or Iguana stuffed animal for Liz the Iguana, and a school bus you have lying around!
- Spray Orange hair spray in your kids hair and add some galaxy tights to add some flair!
