This crafty pizza costume is one a parent and child can "cook" up together. Kids just love making the felt "toppings"!
To make the crust, fold over about 10 inches of foam at one of the narrow ends and attach it with evenly spaced paper fasteners. Fold the entire sheet of foam in half lengthwise. With a marker, draw a wide triangle rising from the crust to the top of the foam.
Cut out the triangle shape through both pieces of foam, using clothespins to connect the sheets. Apply a line of hot glue, about 6 inches at a time, approximately 1 inch from the outside edge. Press the layers together firmly for a few seconds after gluing.
When finished, slip the pizza over your child's head, and mark where her forehead and chin are on the front and where her shoulders are on the back. Cut out a circle for her face in the front layer and two circles for her arms in the back layer.
In a ventilated area, spray-paint the front of the pizza red, and the back and crust yellow. When dry, sponge-paint on white cheese and brown grill marks.
Together with your child, decide what "toppings" you want. Trace on felt, cut out, and attach with hot glue.
For the candy bag, tape closed a clean pizza box, cut out one flap, and tie on red shoelace handles.
