This is such a good event to instill to the children the importance of eating fruits and vegetables. I’m glad that my kids are eating vegetables, but they still have to learn to eat the undesirable ones, taste-wise, like the ampalaya and the eggplant.
Anyway, let me share the collage of pictures I’ve taken for the event. For starters, this is Angel and she wore a strawberry costume with matching hair accessory. I’ll share later how I made these at home.

Next are the pictures of the kids during the event wearing different costumes. I think I saw strawberries, bananas, apple, mangoes, pineapple, corn, eggplant, carrot and pepper. There are made from fabric worn like aprons and there are some made from painted cardboard. The one that got the most attraction is the grape costume made of balloons.

I also took pictures of the designs of t-shirts made by the Grade school students for the Nutrition Month. I think they have not yet announced the winner when I went there. Which do you think is the best looking design?

Now, for Angel’s simple strawberry costume, here’s how I made it.
|Making Angel's Strawberry Costume|
1. I looked for a red dress, it’s good that it already has polka dots (strawberry seeds), which meant less work for me.
2. I cut out leaves from green fabric like in the middle of the picture above. I used a green eco bag so I did not have to buy.
3. I stitched the green leaves to the neckline of the dress, front and back.
4. For the hair accessory, I looked for a red headband, other colors will do. Then, I got a heart-shaped cushion, which was bought last Valentine’s Day, and used glue stick to attach it to the headband. If the heart cushion has a design, show the plain side. Then, I cut some leaves again from the green fabric and glued it to the heart cushion. To finish the strawberry design, I used gold glitter glue to make the dots on the strawberry. Let it dry before wearing.
That’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed the pictures and simple strawberry costume tutorial. Count your blessings!
