I don't know if your child's school does this, but mine does ... Wacky Hair Day. The kids love it. Secretly, it's my favorite fun day too ... since my girls and I came up with this idea:
crossing a french braid concept,
with a small collection of Littlest Pet Shop toys.
There are 9 creatures in all. Each one is held in place with a small, clear hair elastic around its neck.
Pretty cool, eh?
Best part is that the hair is out of her face and the animals stay put all day. These pictures were taken AFTER school.
Other best thing is there's no hair spray, glitter, color, gel ... nothing goopy or messy.
