KIDS: DIY Grandma costume

Do your kiddos celebrate the 100th day of school? I love this idea that Domesticated Combat Boots came up with for her little girl. She whipped up a DIY grandma costume for the 100th day of school. Get it? She is dressed like a 100 year old! The accessories make this costume super awesome, well and the adorable little girl! But, the grey hair with curlers, the reading glasses (with no lenses), the pearls, and the walking cane make for one super awesome 100 year old grandma costume!

How’s that to celebrate the 100th day of school?!
