Virtual Book Club-Nick Sharratt {Pants}

  Our Nick Sharratt display
There is this great bunch of people who have put together a Virtual Book club focusing on different Author's each month! I've joined in on a few (see all about Julia Donaldson HERE) and was super excited about this months Author being Nick Sharratt!! We grabbed a few of his books from the Library and then with the inspiration of the "Pants" book got to making up our own special undies!!
This particular book is one he has only illustrated (it's hard to find the range of Nick books here in Australia) with fun, bright, wonderful pictures it's easy to recognize Nick's work!!
We looked through the book for some pant style ideas, frilly, plain, shorts, W fronts and then I drew up a simple template for the children to cut out and decorate!
 My treasures (well mostly Sophia and Esther) had LOADS of fun finding lace, stickers, jewels and other odd bits to stick to their custom made pants( YAY for the useful box!) Hannah and Zeke went with other ways of decorating..... Ezekiel with textures and Hannah found and then printed some Medieval weapons to cut out and stick on her underwears!
 I of course got in on all the action also and came up with my own groovy design!! Here is what we all made:
Hannah: Weapon pants!! (inspired by her favourite Lego Mini figure the Warrior Woman)
 Ezekiel: Eye Y-fronts- Filled with loads of different coloured eyes!
  Sophia: Fancy, frilly pants, with all that sparkles and a pretty trim!!
 Esther: Submarine pants (like in the story) but with her personal twist on them!! 
(with all the cool ideas she saw Sophia doing and wanted the same!)
 Sharnee (Mummy): I love to Stamp pants! 
Using my favourite colours and stamps with just a touch of fancy trim but still practical & comfy!!
Be sure to check out the other awesome ideas that other wonderful Mummy's have done (it's a blog HOP!)You are sure to find something fun to do with your treasures!! Thanks heaps for popping in!
