Mica's having a Captain Underpants party. I said it could only be for his family party. I didn't want him running around in underwear around his friends. Even so I made him wear tan shorts with underwear over them. Mica is the type of kid that wants it all for his party. I give him what I can. For the rest I say, "Tough!"
If you are not familiar with this character here he is:
It's an odd comic where toilet paper is his weapon. So strange, but Mica and his cousin Evan like him. It got him into reading chapter books.
I ended up sort of making up my own cape. I'm going to walk you through the steps.
I wasn't too excited about this next step. Captain Underpants has a red cape with black dots. Mica had to have the black dots. I thought it would look a bit like a watermelon, or ladybug. It does, but it's his party, and his cape. We made black dots. It works well to just trace around a jar with chalk. You can make whatever pattern for the capes that you want out of any color of felt.
You can leave the bottom straight, but Captain underpants doesn't have a straight bottom cape. I cut out a wave type pattern.
Ta da, here's Captain Mica Underpants with his toilet paper laso. I'll show more pictures for my WW.
