Just Clownin' Around

Last week the theme of Leanna's home school unit was the circus, and each day they had a little skit performed by two clowns, Dewey and Daisy. The girls loved watching them each day as they performed their antics, and Rebekah got the idea that she wanted to dress up like a clown for her upcoming birthday.

We headed down to the town of Candelaria, where there are many small novelty shops, and looked around for some inexpensive props for costumes. The timing was perfect as they had just celebrated Carnival here and there were many items left over in the stores, at reduced prices. It was a lot of fun while developing their creativity, and I thought I would post a few pictures of their first attempts. I am sure they will perfect the art of putting on the makeup, and add more to the costumes as they dream up more ideas.
