Science Week Dress-Up – I’m a Water Molecule

It’s science week and G1 wants to dress up. I tried to convince him to dress up as a robot so we could recycle our robot head but he was having none of that. Instead, he wanted to be…

A Water Molecule

So here we are:

At least it was easy to make…

The Oxygen Atom

It was supposed to be a vest with an “O” but I cut the felt too small so I turned it into a basketball bib.

The Hydrogen Atoms

The hand mitts were made from circular pieces of felt which I cut out using a bowl to draw the out line. Cut out four circles – two for each mitt. Stitch the edges of the circles together and leave an opening large enough for your child’s hand to enter. After stitching, turn them inside out. Cut out 4 “H”s from adhesive felt and stick them onto both sides of the mitts.

And that’s it. Probably one of the simplest costumes I’ve made…

Part of the science day dress-up includes finding interesting facts about your dress-up to share with the class, so…

Although I do think this one’s so much cooler…
