Cluttercast: Peter Pan costume

February 12th, 2009

My daughter Alli was always imaginative, and for her birthday one year she wanted a performance of Peter Pan. She wrote her own version and assigned parts to her friends. I assumed Alli would want to play Wendy, and I had the pefect nightgown. But it was her birthday; she wanted to be the star—so she cast herself as Peter Pan.

I barely passed high school Home Economics. But I managed a passable Peter Pan with a scissors and a piece of green felt. And actually I was proud of how it turned out. Since this was about as handy and creative as I got back in those days.
I think it still works—-although when I found it recently, someone thought it was a costume for the Jolly Green Giant.
Either way. Obviously I’m not ready for Project Runway.

    I think any Elementary School that does school plays, would love to have this in their play closet. As I have said before, I taught elementary school for 26 years. Every time we directed a grade level play, there were always a few children that could not afford to get a costume or mom/dad/caregiver didn’t care enough to try and get one for them. Because of this, our music teacher keeps a play closet in her room so that we could look through and hopefully find our student a costume. If not, we would either turn to a mother who we knew would help or we would purchase or make them one ourselves. We, teachers, always appreciated any donations that came to go in our closet. The child who wears the costume in a play also has the option to keep it or return it after the play is over. Many children wanted to keep their costumes so they could play dress up in them at home afterward. We always allowed the children to do this because the children whose moms made theirs got to play dress up in theirs, why shouldn’t the child who had to have a costume provided. I have had students come to me, many years after a play is over, to tell me how much that cosutme meant to them and how they spent hours and hours playing dress up in it afterward. Talking about a good feeling inside … This was the best feeling a teacher could ever have!!

    I am sure there are schools in your area who do the same thing. I think that would be a wonderful thing to do with this and any other items you think might be useful in a school play production.

    All other readers reading this – Do you have anything like this that you ccould donate to your local school? You could change a child’s life by ddoing so!! Think about it!!
