In search of ideas...

I have a couple things going that I would like some fresh ideas for...First, Braden's school is having "Book Character Day." This replaces Halloween for those that do not celebrate it. He is supposed to go as a character from a book. Easy enough?? Not so. Braden will not tolerate anything on his head or anything that is out of place on him. (I couldn't send him dressed as something that had a tail, etc.) I need some ideas of a character that I could dress him as. I guess it would just have to be the clothing that is the costume and nothing else. He wouldn't carry or hold something as part of his costume either. I am stumped. I want him to have a good costume. If anyone has any ideas I would LOVE to hear them!!

Next, my family and I are having a "harvest party" this year. We are doing it instead of a halloween party so we will not exclude our friends that don't celebrate halloween. We are going to have a bonfire and roast hotdogs and do smores. We are also doing a hayride and bobbing for apples. I am going to let the smaller children paint on little pumpkins also. Does anyone else have any good ideas for games or activities that would be appropriate?? There is going to be a wide age range of people attending and I would like to have enough activities to keep everyone busy. I want this to be a really nice party. Send me your ideas please!!

Have you read Westlandia? I know Braden won't wear a hat, but in this book Wesley's clothes are sewn from his own fabric that he weaves. It is basically just a tunic and shorts sewn from a burlap kind of material. I will keep thinking...

you could try a pumkin. You could put him in an orange outfit that has been painted like a jack o' latern.
