A child’s imagination is one of the sweetest gifts the world is given. It’s been a week since making the cow costumes for Chick-Fil-A, and they have already asked several times to wear them so they can be cows. Once properly attired, they run around on all fours mooing their little hearts out. My heart melts whenever I see them pretending together like this!

To make the costumes, I had to first make white shorts for Mr. R, as he was lacking in any white bottoms (though if for any reason he had white pants they would have been chopped into shorts immediately – 90 degree weather plus Alabama humidity can’t ask for anything more!).  Because the shorts are made from a larger t-shirt and require no hemming at the bottom, they take less than an hour to make. They’re kind of fun to make too since they use elastic thread instead of elastic. In addition, they’re super comfy! I mean, jersey knit shorts? Yum to your skin! Your kids will love these. If you’re not using them to make cows, choose any color to elicit endless entertainment: pink for a pig, stripes for a pirate, or like I am planning on per Mr. A’s requests, green for a frog!
