    Accomplishments on a Mellow Monday

    A tired mommy with a wobbly tummy utilizes the crock pot and sits in the backyard while watching her children squish tomatoes and dig in dirt. She is glad to have finished the boy's peter pan costume for next week. He is sure to be the only fuzzy fleece ( but warm) green guy trick-or-treating. Boy is exceedingly happy, though. Girl jumps in during the photo shoot and gives mom a grin. Aww. Kids are cute.

    Any ideas on making a pan flute?

    Zac had a huge Peter Pan phase. I made him a Peter Pan outfit for Christmas one year and he practically lived in it. He found a pan flute on e-bay and bought it himself. I suppose if you just wanted one for decoration you could band together several pieces of bamboo. We discovered the real pan flutes are difficult to play.

    This site is kind of fun -- if you go to the "click and play" section on the website below, place the cursor over the pan flute keys, you will hear the actual sounds of the instrument - Basil will love hearing it! http://www.pan-flute.com/home.html

    What a great outfit!!! He's one cute little Peter Pan :)

    Maybe if you find some wooden dowels (is it dowl or dowel?) at a hardware or craft store, then you could cut them to size, paint them yellow and hot-glue them together. Eh? Just an idea.

    This is probably the preschool teacher in me speaking, but you could make a craft out of it by having Basil collect the sticks and then together cut them size then paint them or leave them as they are for a "rustic" look. That way he would be a part of the whole process and probably pretty proud of his pan flute. (wow, that was a lot of P's.)
    The costume is great! You are very talented and he is very cute.

    my thots regarding he pan flute construction echo those of elizabeth... if you do not want one that is usable, but rather going for the effect bamboo connected together will give the effect... or you can go and get a dowel rod and cut it to various sizes and connect --actually the dowel rod might work easier, as it will probably be less prone to spliting.

    Basil looks great! and in the words of the Peter Pan ride at Disneyland, "Hold on tight coz here we goooooooooooo."

    i was thinking that you can use a paper towel roll. You can even make it thiner if you cut some off and then role it tighter. You can use a hole punch for the holes, and the good thing about the paper towel role is that it wont hurt if one of the kids get hit with it. :) Love aunt val

    Positively elfin. That's a great Peter Pan suit. I've been playing Captain Hook to my son's Peter Pan (minus the suit) this past couple weeks, too.
