This month’s theme for T at his school is “At the farm”. I thought of making him a simple farm animal costume. Not the full costume but just a headband with felt ears attached to it. But two days back, T reminded me that I had promised him to make a farmer & tractor costume. I totally forgot about it. 😦
After few minutes of browsing, I decided to make a simple tractor using cardboard. I had a cardboard box of recently bought food processor. It was of perfect size.
I coloured the cardboard with green acrylic paint. Painted a thick yellow line on the sides.
Used two large sized paper plates for the back wheels and smaller ones for the front wheels. Coloured them with yellow and black acrylics.
Coloured a toilet paper roll black and used it as exhaust pipe.
Made the headlights using styrofoam cube (Sliced the cube into half)
Used an elastic band to wear it. Punctured two holes in the cardboard and tied the elastic.
Making the costume took around 2 hours. Gathering the materials took much of the time. Luckily, I had all the materials at home. And here is T as a farmer driving a tractor.
